Saturday, September 29, 2018
Looking back at 2017...
Thank you to all of the bands, businesses and organizations, volunteers and attendees who made this year's 60th Anniversary Band Day Parade a success! This year we showcased 16 middle and high school bands and 74 businesses and organizations.
A special thank you to the sponsors who helped make this year's event possible. Band Day business sponsors were United Bank of Iowa and Windstar Express, and our school partners and sponsors were Carroll Community Schools and Kuemper Catholic Schools. Both Carroll and Kuemper Schools have been supporters of this event since the very beginning... all 60 years!
To commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the Band Day Parade, this year's event was themed Celebrating Carroll's Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. Additionally, floats were able to compete for a Best "Throwback" Award, a trophy presented to the float which best celebrating the events 60 year history. That award was presented to St. Anthony Regional Hospital and Nursing Home for their float, a pink 1949 Farmall H tractor owned by Tammy Auen, pulling a trailer of St. Anthony's nurses, past and present, each representing a different time period over the last 60 years with their era-appropriate nursing attire.
