(Maricopa) On Saturday, December 16th, the Maricopa High School Band, Theater Company and Technical Theater programs participated in the Town of Gila Bend's Light Parade and "Santa in the Park" event. The event was planned and overseen by former MHS Assistant Principal Krista Vandermolen, now director of Parks and Recreation for the Town of Gila Bend.

The MHS programs were the spirit of the event. Technical theater, along with teacher Kevin Piquette, built a float and mobile sound station for the parade and provided sound and announcements for the event. The Theater Company performed "Twelve Days To Christmas" from She Loves Me and the Marching Rams marched in the parade and also performed a 20 minute concert of pep band and holiday music as part of the evening's festivities at the park.

 Mr. Pour commented, “We want to thank the Town of Gila Bend for inviting us to be a part of this wonderful event. It was great to be able to share the success and wonderful programs we have at Maricopa High School with our neighbors in Gila Bend!”
