Tentative Trip Cost

At this time, the anticipated cost is still estimated to be $3,600.00 per student. While most of the factors have been secured, there are still some factors to be worked out. It is not known if the exact cost will be determined before the end of the 2022-2023 school year. All families are strongly encouraged to continue fundraising and saving money, even before the exact cost has been determined.

Fundraising activities are ramping up. The band parent organization is working hard to provide additional and suitable opportunities for families to raise money. Families should regularly check the band parent website to stay up to date on all fundraising opportunities.

Securing corporate sponsorships is also a great way to build up trip accounts and reduce the overall cost.

Currently, the estimated cost for the trip is approximately $3,600.00. Payments have been divided up into eight equal payments, beginning in March. No payment is required in May so families can better be ready to pay 2023 Marching Band Registration Fees.

The exact cost of the Rose Parade Trip will be determined when all trip details have been finalized. As of 5/1/23, there has been no change in the trip cost. Once the cost is locked in, the payment schedule and remaining payments will be adjusted to match the actual cost and remaining balance of the trip.
