The 34th Annual WFISD Marching Festival - KAUZ-TV: Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

The 34th Annual WFISD Marching Festival

Monday night was the 34th annual WFISD Marching Festival.  Bands from all across Texoma played their hearts out in front of a large crowd at Memorial Stadium. 

The event started off at 4:45 Monday afternoon and the Midwestern State University Marching Band performed as the exhibition band for the festival. Newschannel 6 spoke to a MSU band member, Katie Pruitt, who knows just what this festival means to the bands.

"A lot of them, its their life, its all their high school years have revolved around.  And football--they have come to the games but more than likely they're there for the band because its such a good family."

 The WFISD Marching Festival is a place where bands get to show off their talent before the real competition begins.  The bands will face off again at the Region II UIL Marching Contest for the right to go to area competition and then to state.  That competition starts Saturday morning at 8, at Memorial Stadium.
