Clapping Whenever Hearing Elyria High Fight Song
Whether it's Band Appreciation Day, Memorial Day, the Apple Festival, or a random event in Elyria that the Elyria High School Pioneer Marching Band shows up to, whenever the band plays the fight song, hands start clapping to the upbeat tune.
As a former member of the band, I think it is amazing that it is quite universal. We went to Norfolk, Virginia and were in a parade. When we played our fight song, even the people from a different STATE clapped along to our catchy fight song from the march, Our Director. It is a traditon that I've noticed somehow brings Elyria together for those few minutes every year for a bit of Elyria pride.
