2016 Fresno Marine Corps Ball
A combined effort by the Fresno Detachment of the Marine Corps League and the Fresno Veterans Day Parade to celebrate the 241st Birthday of the United States Marine Corps with Guest of Honor Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North. We have invited the public to participate in this grand occasion.
The Marine Corps Ball is a time honored tradition to celebrate the birth of the Marine Corps. The cake cutting ceremony is the cornerstone of this celebration symbolizing the passing of traditions from generation to generation of Marines. We are fortunate to have the Marines of Marine Wing Support Squadron 473, Detachment A, perform the ceremony in true Marine Corps fashion. If you have never experienced a Marine Corps Ball, you do not want to miss this event.
Music for the dance will be provided by Tortilla Soup, so get dressed in your best formal attire and dance the night away.
Note: This is a formal event, please dress appropriately or you will not be allowed to enter. Formal attire consists of Dress Military Uniform, Black Tie/Tuxedo, Suit and Tie, or Formal Ball Gown. Ceremony will start promptly at 7:00PM, the doors will close and no entry will be allowed until the completion of the ceremony.
