School Band Application Form

This is the application to participate in Delmarva’s Finest Christmas Parade…the Pocomoke City Christmas Parade on Monday night, November 29th at 7:00 p.m. Acknowledged by many Band Directors as the area’s premier parade, our exciting parade package includes:

• All bands will receive $300 travel expense money the night of parade at check in. They will also be competing for trophies in their respective divisions:
• Grand Champion award of a trophy for highest overall scoring band
• Professional judging by the National Judges Association (NJA) with individual and composite score sheets provided to each band
*Musician numbers may be revised to provide an equitable number of bands in each division. Should this occur, you will be notified prior to the parade.

The parade route is one mile in length with no turns with the reviewing stand located to your right in the downtown area. This is a wide, well-lit area. We do permit a SHORT pause for a routine in at the reviewing stand. However, due to the size of the parade, stops for routines along the parade not will be permitted. Prizes and trophies will be awarded immediately upon the judges’ decisions from the reviewing stand. In the event of inclement weather, the parade will be postponed until Tuesday December 3rd at 7pm. Schools will be notified by 2:00 p.m. if we must postpone the event.

The Pocomoke City Christmas Parade is proud to attract bands from throughout the tri-state area. We listen to the suggestions of our band directors that help us make this event better each year. We hope you accept our invitation to participate. Should you have any questions, please call Mike Shannon at 410-726-5777.
