Pinckneyville Mardi Gras

Pinckneyville Mardi Gras
Pinckneyville, IL

Ticket Prices – $5.00 Adult / $3.00 Student
All participating students, directors, and chaperones will have passes to get into the grand stand.

I would like to invite you to attend our Mardi Gras Field and Parade Competition that will be held on October 30th 2021. It is always a great, friendly competition, as it is usually your last competition for the season. We love to provide uplifting and purposeful comments for a great season closer. The field show typically starts around 1:00, depending on the number of entries, and the parade will begin at 7:00 pm with awards presented right after the parade.

EACH BAND IN THE PARADE RECEIVES $100. Additionally, there will be prize money for the parade–$200 for first, $100 for second, and $50 for third. There will be a single first place prize for all the Junior High bands. We will be charging $150 for field show participation. The field show awards will be trophies. Additionally, there will be a prize of $500.00 for the band having the highest combined parade and field show score. Bands will be divided by class based on school enrollment.

I am propelling us forward into the 21st century and for the first time, we are having you fill out a Google Form for our festival. If you would prefer a paper copy or need it for record keeping, please let me know and I would be happy to send you a hard copy.

We look forward to hosting you!
