Wildcat Marching Band Honors 80th Celebration


It’s Long Island’s oldest St. Patrick’s Parade. Thousands lined the streets of Huntington Village to greet hundreds of performers and marchers on a crisp sunny day. The Walt Whitman Marching Band was well received and a welcomed addition to the pipe and drum bands that brought the traditional sounds that signify this special time of year.

“Thank you to our Wildcat Marching Band members, under the leadership of Messrs. Dan Krueger and Allen Deitz, for anchoring last Sunday's St. Patrick's Day Parade,” said Superintendent Bennardo in his weekly newsletter.  “Our fantastic band brought incredible energy to the parade and spread Walt Whitman pride throughout the Town of Huntington. Special thanks to our parents and directors for embracing the year-long commitment required of a competitive marching band.”
