The Fort Myers High School music program will hold its’ first ever Food Truck Festival on Saturday, October 10, 2015 at the Southwest Florida and Lee County Fairgrounds from 11am – 4pm. In order to raise funds for the students of the music programs to go to London, local food trucks have graciously agreed to contribute a percentage of their sales to the students. These trucks include all the local favorites and then some.
Along with the food trucks, supporters will have an opportunity to shop from local crafters, vendors, and even some yard sale booths. These vendors will be set up under the esteemed Tinsley Pavilion. Supporters will also have a chance to win money in the Cow Patty Bingo Games. What are the cow patty bingo games you ask? For $20, supporters will have the opportunity to buy a cow tail candy and receive a numbered square ticket. Bessie, the cow, will then be sent into a lush green field to conduct her business. Prize money will be awarded based on where Bessie does her business. The square with the first and most business wins. If her business is equally in two different squares, the prize will be split equally. A line judge will determine the winner.
The students of the Fort Myers High School music programs will show off the talents that won them the invitation to London. Small ensembles such as the Jazz Band, Drumline, Choir, and many more will be providing entertainment throughout the day by performing all genres of music. All of these activities will help to raise funds for the students of the Fort Myers High School music program to attend the once in a lifetime trip to London.
“I feel so honored to go, and excited, like my nerves are off the charts right now,” said Drum Major Jalen Luna about the upcoming trip to London.
Drum Major Harold Silva said, “It’s just incredible that Fort Myers High School got the honor to be invited to London. It’s going to be very fun. It’s going to be very memorable.”
