Pulaski marching band practices for Tournament of Roses Parade


PULASKI, Wis. (WBAY) – Pulaski High School’s much-vaunted marching band is dedicating this weekend to fine-tuning its routines for the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California.

A grueling practice started at 9 a.m. Friday at the Lambeau Field parking lot and didn’t end until 8:30 p.m.

“The preparation of course started about a year and a half ago,” said Kayla Stocco, assistant director of the Pulaski High School Red Raider Marching Band. “So seeing things, you know, come to light getting the kids excited now as we’re almost a month away is really rewarding. It’s great to see them grow and to see them overcome challenges and really get to be a part of something special.”

Thirty chaperones and over 200 students will be heading west for the Parade of Roses, which is on Jan. 2.
