The Merrill City Band opens each season with a huge community wide event, culminating with the concert. There are many activities and prizes for kids, from face-painting to digging for treasure. Activities match the theme and everyone has a great time. It’s the annual costume concert for the band and it’s hard to tell who’s having more fun, the kids or the band members. The pirate concert in 2014 was the biggest hit of all, and the loudest! The live cannon being fired all night long shook up the neighborhood. Here are a few posters and programs from some popular opening concerts. Go ahead and download the PDFs on the right hand side to see them.
