The schedule also includes our legendary all families, Band Cookout and Swim Party at Fox Brook Park on Wednesday evening! Be there and bring the entire family!

Waukesha March Fest Video
This past weekend, the Trojan Band participated in our first marching competition in 19 years, and received 2nd place in our division. We're extremely proud of our accomplishment, and would like to thank all of those who made it possible (Band Boosters, our Bus Drivers, etc) as well as everyone who showed up to support us at the performance. Below is a video of our show:
Wisconsin Dells and Wo-Zha-Wa Parade
A couple weeks ago, the band traveled to the Dells to participate in the annual Wo-Zha-Wa parade, as well as to enjoy a weekend at the Wilderness Water Park and Resort. While there, we relaxed and enjoyed the facilities at the Wilderness, had an all-you-can-eat pizza dinner at Sorento's, enjoyed a breakfast buffet at Paul Bunyan's, and marched in the parade alongside dozens of other bands. Below, you can find pictures of our time.
