Marching Band Competition

Top marching bands from the region march in our parades each year, and we’d love for you to join us. We hold two parades each day: the first at 2:15 p.m. and the second at 6 p.m. Band awards and drum line performances take place at 3:30 p.m. each day. Awards given each day include those for 1st Place, 2nd Place, 3rd Place and People’s Choice.

Applications for the Marching Band Competitions are due by May 1.
