 Waseca Marching Classic Celebration Celebrating 35 years, the Waseca Marching Classic is noted for its hospitality and well-rounded experience for participating bands. Details such as educational clinics, a large community parade and a fireworks display have become hallmarks of the Classic.

To honor the fans, the Classic committee is proclaiming the 35th annual event to be FAN APPRECIATION DAY! Ten $50.00 cash prizes will be drawn throughout the field show competition. Those purchasing a field show admission wristband are eligible to win.

The parade begins at 12:00pm in downtown Waseca. Thousands of spectators line the parade route which travels on State Street from 2nd Avenue SE to 6th Avenue NE. Professional judges critique the parade and field competitions. Throughout the day, these same judges/clinicians offer one-hour educational clinics to the participating bands. The 5:30pm field show at the Waseca Jr.-Sr. High School Stadium features bands competing in three classes. The awards ceremony is followed by the grand finale, the Classic fireworks display, a favorite of the band students.

Interested bands can get more information and register online at WasecaMarchingClassic.com. Classification is determined by school enrollment, but special circumstances will be considered by the Classic committee for bands with less experience or personnel. Bands that register by August 15 are eligible for one of three bonus "band participation" prizes ranging from $250 to $500. See WasecaMarchingClassic.com for details.
