Hillside will perform with the Royal High School Marching Band at the football game at Royal High School on October 27th. 

Students will arrive at Royal at 5:00 with instrument and music.  They will meet the members of the Royal High Band and enjoy a pizza dinner.  Then they will march into the stadium with the High School Band.  Then the students will play in the stands with the High School during the game.  Students will get the 3rd quarter off so they will want to bring money to purchase food at the snack stand. After the game is over the students will put their instruments in their cases and be released to their parents.
