The Festus Marching Tigers traditionally take one pre-season practice under the lights at Tiger Stadium, but this year, a scheduling conflict necessitated the band's final run-through on Thursday (Sept. 3) under the bright sunlight of late afternoon. The Marching Tigers perfected their entrances and exits, reacquainted themselves with the school fight song and the classic "Eye of the Tiger" and put the finishing touches on their halftime show of Motown classics.
