The Fallbrook Union High School Marching Band has been invited to participate in the 75th Memorial Day Parade in Hawaii in May 2020 to honor Pearl Harbor.
To get the entire band to Hawaii to perform on the deck of the USS Missouri and participate in a parade that will include 250,000 people, the band is currently working hard to raise the more than $200,000 it will cost.
The band, at the direction of Derek Lee for the past couple of years, has begun to see the fruits of their labor, bringing home six first-place trophies and qualifying for marching band championships last year.
