Will there be a Band Day parade this year at KU?
Yes. Kansas University's traditional Band Day parade and halftime performance will be Sept. 14. The parade will be at 1 p.m. down Massachusetts Street. About 50 bands from Kansas and Missouri high schools then will perform at halftime of the KU-Southwest Missouri State football game. Kickoff is at 6 p.m.
KU canceled its Band Day last year when a contract with FOX Sports to televise the game forced kickoff to be at 11:30 a.m. Officials decided it wasn't possible to schedule the parade before the game.
