After a one-week delay due to bad weather, the Dalton High School and Dalton Middle School bands performed in the 2013 Dalton Christmas Parade. This video highlights the DHS Band. Check out the special tuba decorations.
DALTON CHRISTMAS PARADE TOMORROW…maybe…
Due to the potential for rainy weather, the Lions Club will decide by 2pm whether the parade will continue tomorrow or be postponed until next week.
If the parade continues tomorrow: Students should begin meeting at First Baptist Church about 5:00pm. Chorus students have a rehearsal that ends at 5:00pm, so they will need to quickly change and be at FBC by 5:30pm. The parade begins at 6:00pm.
We will wear Santa hats, so no need to transport straw hats this time.
Enjoy this video of the Catamount Marching Band performing in the Veterans Day Parade in downtown Dalton on Saturday, Nov. 9. Also check out the photo slideshow.
The performance begins at 1:20 after introduction and announcement of the band.
