West Orange High School will host the event, similar to the Marching Band Invitational held in the Fall.

Both Junior and Senior Winter Guards from across the tri-state region will perform, including West Milford, Bridgewater-Raritan, Mineola, North and South Plainfield, Wayne Hills, Matawan, Fair Lawn, Pequannock, Roxbury, Ramsey, Ridgewood, Toms River, Morristown, and Allentown. West Orange will perform in exhibition as hosts of the event.

“There are [currently] over 30 members of the WOHS Winter Guard and the program is flourishing,” said Lagatic.

Any monies earned from the event will help to fund the West Orange Winter Guard as the team competes during the season, which will include competitions in MAIN as well as the WGI (Winter Guard International).

Tickets for the competition are $10 at the door for adults and $8 for seniors and students. The family-friendly event is a unique opportunity for children to see how the intricacies of dance, balance, athleticism and coordination are utilized in color guard.

“I am proud of what the students and coaches have accomplished so far and I'm looking forward to seeing them perform and compete,” said Lagatic.

Tarnoff Gymnasium is located on the Pleasant Valley side of the West Orange High School campus. Parking is available in the main Conforti Avenue parking lot and limited parking available may be available in the parking lot off Alisa Drive.
