2015 Outback Bowl

I’m a little late in getting this posted.  Okay, maybe I’m more than a little late.  In any event, we made the trek to Florida after Christmas for the 2015 Outback Bowl.  The Belleville East Marching Lancers marched in the Outback Bowl Parade along with a dozen or so other high schools.  Then, they participated in the “Mass Band” performance at half time of the football game on New Year’s Day.  We and several parents provided logistical support for the band during all of the events.

In the end, the Marching Lancers took home a number of awards for their effort.  And, we all had a good trip.  Here are a few photos of our experience.


We managed to squeeze in lunch with the in-laws and see the Atlantic
