￼￼￼￼￼Following up last year’s A-list entertainment from award-winning hip hop artists and R&B legends, along with dazzling performances by participating school's bands, fans are hyped to see what’s next. After they’ve sampled some great food, prizes, and giveaways, they’ll have a taste for what’s in store.￼
An expected 30,000 fans are turning out for a line-up of parades and big play performances at halftime. They’ll even get a chance to attend expos to sample the latest and greatest McCafé beverages, like the Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie and Mango Pineapple Smoothie straight off the Smoothie Fusion Tour motor coach.
Students and event-goers can even check out the symposiums at this year’s Classics. They’ll be able to learn about scholarships, higher education, and employment opportunities.
And the event wouldn’t be complete without a chance at Arch Cards, Deeply Rooted Tote Bags, and a chance to meet and great Ronald McDonald® himself.Back to Events
