If you are NOT auditioning for Region, then you are marching in the Richardson Parade with us!

Richardson Holiday Parade

All band and color guard students are required to attend this parade (except those auditioning for All-Region Band).

ALL Drumline will perform, regardless of whether or not you are auditioning… we only do this once every 4 years. Thank you, Drumline!!

7:15 ARRIVE at Berkner HS and get into your marching uniform. We will wear bibbers, jacket, long black socks and shoes, and SANTA HATS! (Antlers are OK, too, but nothing that makes noise!). No shakos or plumes for this performance. No make-up or jewelry. All uniform guidelines are in place with the exception of the Santa hat.

Meet in the Berkner High School Band Hall in full uniform with your Marching instrument, Flip folder/lyre and Parade music (Jingle Bells)

7:30 am Rehearsal begins.

8:00 am Line up in front of Target

9:00 am Parade begins

At the conclusion of the parade (around 9:45 AM), you are to return your uniform to LH! DO NOT KEEP YOUR UNIFORM OVER THE WEEKEND!

Important Information

The parade begins at Richardson Square Shopping Center in front of Lowe’s and ends at Huffhines park on Apollo Road.

Each student is responsible for arranging his/her own transportation at the end of the parade. It is suggested that students who drive arrange transportation in groups so that one person can leave a vehicle at Apollo Junior High and then catch a ride back to Berkner for the start of the parade. Otherwise it’s a 1.5 mile walk back to BHS to get your car!

When planning your rides, remember to allow room for instruments/equipment.

The parade route runs northbound along Plano Road between Spring Valley and Apollo Rd.

Traffic will be a problem as Plano Road will be partially closed for the parade. Allow plenty of time for drop-off and parking.

This is a public performance in which we represent not only Lake Highlands High School, but the entire Richardson ISD. All rules regarding conduct and performance are in full effect.

Thank you all for helping with this community celebration!

If you are auditioning for Region, please follow the schedule below:

ALL Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from Berkner HS.

Each student will have a specific sign-in time. Once the directors have received those times, we will post them in the Band Hall.

When your audition has ended, results should be available within an hour.

Sign-in times range from 11:30 am and 4:00 pm. Unfortunately we cannot estimate each instrument’s end time.

If you advance to Phase 2, you will audition again on Monday night at Berkner HS.
