On Friday, September 26, 2014, the Dallas Baptist University Patriettes and Patriot Drumline participated in the Annual State Fair of Texas Opening Day Parade in Dallas. The Patriettes and Drumline marched along Main Street through Downtown Dallas with 67 other popular Texas parade favorites, including the iconic Big Tex float, the Ronald McDonald float, and the United States Marine Corps Drum and Bugle Corps.
The Patriettes and Drumline entertained the crowd and represented DBU to the Dallas community as they performed for a reported crowd of over 5,000 people. The Drumline played some traditional DBU beats, while the Patriettes dance, kicked, and entertained the crowds lined up along the sidewalks.
“It is an honor to consistently be involved in the Annual State Fair of Texas Parade in Dallas, as it has been a tradition for the Patriettes and Drumline since their inception a few years ago. It gives the teams an opportunity to represent Dallas Baptist University and serve the surrounding Dallas community,” reports Spirit Coordinator, Michelle Grose.
