Community unites for the 5th annual lee-esta parade
It has been 55 years since the doors opened at Lee High School and Volunteer Pride is stronger than ever. The campus and surrounding community came together for a celebration of all things Lee on Oct. 23 at the 5th Annual Lee-esta Parade. The parade has become a growing tradition, featuring cluster schools, the Lee marching band, spirit groups, athletics and clubs.
“Lee-esta was a huge success,” said Tina Alanis, dance director at Lee and event coordinator. The campus welcomed Drumming with Nina, a percussion group that presents interactive drum performances. Local radio station 94.1 KTFM was also on hand to deliver a soundtrack to all the fun.
Community members had front row seats as many sat outside their homes, with some even waving from the roof of the house. One of the parade banners read, “Watch out Mac, Lee is Back,” as students get pumped up for the football game this Friday night against MacArthur at Heroes Stadium.
