Odessa Marching Festival

Marching Band Parents,

We hope to see you at the Odessa Marching Festival on Saturday, October 18th. The school’s address is 713 S. 3rd Street, Odessa, MO 64076.

We have attached a map of the campus. Spectator parking is in the lot on the north side of the school near 3rd Street and Phillips Street. There will not be room to park with the band. We will not know the exact location for the band’s campsite until we arrive. The campsite will be in the “bus” parking lots west of 5th Street and College Street.

Please e-mail Mary Grigsby (marygrigsby) with a headcount if you plan to eat dinner with the band (do not include your LSW band student in the count). We are having potato soup and chili. The cost is $7 per adult and $5 for middle school age kids and younger. If you have special dietary needs, please contact Mary. Food may be available for “Walk-ins” on Saturday after the band and those that e-mailed Mary have been served.

There is an admission charge to watch the performance from the stands. The charge will be $8.00 for adults and $5.00 for seniors and students (age 6 through 18). Children 5 years old and under are free.

Please take pictures. We need pictures to share during the end of the season banquet. Thank you again for not parking in the driveway near the band doors during loading and unloading. As always, we can use lots of help loading and unloading. We will be loading the majority of the equipment on Friday immediately after school at noon.

Thank you,
Scott McMilian
