Fourty Six Indiana Marching Bands Compete in the State Fair Band Day Preliminaries


Considering my lack of musical talent, I was more than impressed by my first experience at today’s Indiana State Fair Band Day Competition.  Between the color guards’ precision and the drums’ resounding beat, all 46 bands put on a show worthy of mention. 

However, only the following bands will advance to the “Sweet Sixteen” and compete in tonight’s final competition: 

Anderson High School
Centerville High School
East Central High School
Elwood High School
Frankton High School
Jay County High School
Kokomo High School
Mooresville High School
Muncie Central High School
Muncie Southside High School
Noblesville High School
Northeastern High School
Richmond High School
Union County High School
Winchester Community High School
Yorktown High School

The class awards for the preliminary competition are as followed:


Class A
Class AA
Class AAA
3rd Place
Manchester
Yorktown

2nd Place

Muncie Southside
