Early Saturday morning, the band and choir performed for the competition part of the trip. Followed by the performances, they went to Seaworld and saw a whole bunch of different sea-life shows. Many of the band and choir students sat in “splash zone” of an Orca Whale show. There was also a few rides at Seaworld that the students went on. The weather for that day was not nice enough to be outside while wet. Following Seaworld, they went to a rodeo and awards ceremony.
