BLUE HILL, Neb. — The Blue Hill Bobcats are one of many schools competing in this year's Harvest of Harmony Parade.
Bobcat Band Director Janice Dart said they have a signature move they take around corners that makes them different from all the other bands they’re competing against.
She said the parade is one of their biggest events of the year, and they take a lot of time and effort to prepare for it.
“Harvest of Harmony is definitely our high point; it’s the end of our parade season, so this is what our whole marching band season builds up to is Harvest of Harmony,” said Dart.
Dart said it takes months to perfect their routine, and she said all the students have to work as a team, be in sync and, of course, know their music.
“We focus on marching and step, making sure our music is memorized and that we have a nice balanced sound as we play, making sure everybody's uniform is exactly the same, and we do have a couple of surprises for our crowd this year that they’ll just have to tune in and watch,” said Dart.
Dart also told NTV News that they don’t have any seniors on their team this year, but she said their juniors have been great leaders, and they’re excited to showcase everything they’ve learned and practiced over the last several months during the Harvest of Harmony Parade.
