WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

WFISD and surrounding area high school bands performed Monday afternoon for the 40th annual marching festival.

The festival took place at Memorial Stadium at 5:15 p.m. 

A total of 15 high school bands performed during this event including Wichita Falls High School, Rider High School, Hirschi High School, Archer City High school, and Iowa Park High School.

Admission was $2 and WFISD employees were able to attend for free if they showed their district badge at the front gate.

Kelly Strenski, WFISD fine arts Director, said this event was a Pre-UIL.

"We have three judges who are here. They are retired band directors from around the state who are coming to give critiques to band directors and students as they prepare for their upcoming UIL contest," Strenski said.
