If you can toot a horn, pound a drum or play a tune on a flute, the city of Lexington is looking for you.
The city is once again asking for volunteer musicians to sign up to play and march in the Lexington Community Band during the Fourth of July Parade. Participants will get a free t-shirt to wear.
People wanting to take part can contact the Downtown Lexington Corporation and arrange to borrow an instrument if you do not own one. To reserve a loaner instrument, request one no later than June 25.
Participants from all over Kentucky are welcome to join. Band members should be able to complete a one-mile route on foot. Organizers say there are no high-stepping or fancy maneuvers involved.
Copies of the music that will be played can be emailed or mailed to participants in advance.
There will be a rehearsal prior to July 4. If you cannot make the rehearsal but still want to participate, come to the Lexington Herald-Leader parking lot at Main and Midland by 1 p.m. Wednesday, July 4, for a short pre-parade rehearsal.
The parade will be held at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4, in downtown Lexington.
To sign up or for more information, contact Devin Luckett at firstname.lastname@example.org or 859-425-2594.
