BALL STATE BANDS FAMILY DAY
Ball State University Bands cordially invites you to “Family Day!” Family Day with the band is becoming a great tradition within our organization, and we're looking forward to hosting you for our first game of the season! Thank you for the encouragement you show for the marching band at Ball State University; we look forward to meeting you.
On Saturday, September 16, 2017, Ball State will host Family Weekend, and we invite you to join the Pride of Mid-America for our seventh annual Family Day. Parents, grandparents, all family members and friends of PoMA students are welcome to experience game day in the life of a band member. Please join us for our game-day rehearsal, a meal, and then sit next to the band in the stands as we cheer on our Cardinals as they take on Tennessee Tech!
