2019 Festival of Bands / Fill the Drum / Senior Recognition Night
Thursday, September 19
Warren O'Plaine Stadium
In addition to recognizing the Seniors in the Warren Township Marching Band Program, each year the marching bands of Warren, Woodland, and Viking perform for their parents and the Gurnee Community. In 2005, after Hurricane Katrina, this event became a way to help others in need. Therefore, we call it Festival of Marching Bands (Fill-The-Drum). We ask those who are able, to donate at the gate the evening of the performance. We literally fill a drum with donations to send to a worthy cause. In the past, we have donated to the various cancer societies, the Iowa Flood Relief Fund, the Warren Food Pantry, and animal shelters.
