Successful Central States Marching Festival

Submitted by Alex Wimmer

On Saturday, Oct. 22, the Kansas State University Marching Band hosted its annual Central States Marching Festival in Bill Snyder Family Stadium.

Thousands of high school students and spectators enjoyed the performances of 38 high school bands, with a finale performed by The Pride of Wildcat Land to end the festival. Throughout the day, 17 bands received one-hour clinics, where they worked with K-State students and staff to help improve their musical and marching performance. The festival was coordinated by Director of Bands Frank Tracz and staffed by Kansas State University Marching Band students and staff.

The Kansas State University Marching Band thanks K-State Athletics for the use of its faculties and its continued support of this incredible event.
