2017 Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade
The SLHS "Spirit of Reston" Marching Band traveled to Honolulu Hawaii last December to represent South Lakes HS, Reston and the Commonwealth of Virginia in the 2017 Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade!
119 of our students enjoyed the trip of a lifetime! In addition to marching in the televised parade, the band performed a tribute concert at the USS Missouri. Our students had many amazing experiences - they stood on the deck of the USS Missouri - site of the Japanese surrender; gazed up at the names of those lost and peered down at their watery resting place at the USS Arizona memorial; hiked up Diamond Head to experience beautiful views of Honolulu below; enjoyed the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of Polynesian culture at the PCC; and swam in the Pacific Ocean and played on Waikiki Beach with some other best friends.
