The free community performance is set for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, at Marion High School’s Dick Lootens Stadium. The Marching Giants would like to invite all Marion Community families, staff, and the entire community to come out and enjoy the show!

All other opportunities to see this show involve an admission price (either at a home football game or at a marching competition around the state). But every year, the Marching Giants put on a special performance so that the hometown crowd can watch and enjoy the show for free. We hope to see you there!
