Sulphur Springs ISD fine arts students are gearing up for the 2022 holiday season, which will officially kickoff Friday night. The next two weeks will be packed with opportunities for community members to enjoy the sounds of the district’s accomplished band and choir students.
The festivities begin Friday evening, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m. with music played by the state-ranked Wildcat Band as the students join friends and fellow participants in the Lions Club Lighted Christmas Parade, and the 2022 holiday season will conclude with a special presentation at Hopkins County Courthouse on Dec. 12.
