The Pride of Breckenridge – Buckaroo Marching Band will perform its annual light show on Friday, Oct. 30, despite the cancellation of the football game. The “Black Out” show is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. in Buckaroo Stadium and is expected to last about 30 minutes.

The performance will be free and open to the general public. Prior to the show, the Band Boosters will be selling glow sticks as a fundraiser.

The only entrance open to the public will be on the northwest corner of the stadium. The gates will open at 7:30 p.m.

All regular stadium performance procedures should be followed, such as attendees are required to have a face shield on to enter the stadium and attendees are required to socially distance in the stands (except in family groups).

Spectators also are encouraged to wear their “Pink Out” shirts in support of cancer survivors and those battling cancer.

The football games against the Jim Ned Indians, originally scheduled for Oct. 29 and 30, were canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.
