Band members are excited to perform in the parade


Duluth East’s band is making the final adjustments for their performance in this Friday’s Christmas City of the North Parade.

For the 100 members this is one of the most important performances of the year, not only because it’s one of the largest crowds they play in front of, but because of what it means for the whole community.

Rylea Patterson the bands vice president has been going to the parade all her life and says its one of her favorite events of the year.

“The christmas city of the north parade is probably my favorite parade in Duluth. It just reminds me of Christmas time and seeing Santa at the end of the parade and then the beginning of Bentleyville and having all the lights setup and everything.” She said.

The only thing that she hopes for is for the weather to be warm enough so she can play the clarinet without her fingers going numb.

I have lived my entire life in Maine, just North of Portland in the town of Freeport. I studied Meteorology at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire and minored in Mathematics. I have been interested in Meteorology since I was about 5 years old. I played hockey until college and I played baseball throughout my time at PSU. So far I have loved the Duluth area and I’m excited for lots of snow and -60 degree windchills.
