Local Bands shine at Marching Festival

Contributed by Jenny Wootten Mann

SCOTTSBORO, Ala. — To some fall brings the feeling of football and chili, but to others it means marching band and fried oreos!

Last Saturday, several bands from north and central Alabama traveled to Scottsboro, Ala. for the “Where the Mountains Meet the Lakes Marching Band Festival.” Bands from Class 1A to 4A competed for Best in Class with a variety of shows ranging from “Happy” by Pharrell Williams to “Yesterday” by The Beatles and a patriotic show that pulled your heartstrings.

DeKalb County was well represented at this competition by four of our county bands. Crossville, Ider, Plainview and Fyffe were all in attendance and each did an outstanding job!

Crossville received Best in Class Majorettes. Ider took Best in Class Color Guard and Plainview won the Best in Class Percussion.

Crossville, Plainview and Fyffe received overall superior ratings for their performances and Ider received an excellent rating. At the end of the night, Plainview also went home with the Most Entertaining Band award.

What started out as a rainy, gloomy day turned into the perfect setting for a marching band festival.

The Scottsboro High School Wildcat Marching Band finished up the night with a phenomenal performance as the host exhibition band.

If you’re a band fan and love to see these halftime shows, make plans to attend next year, October 19, 2019 at the Pat Trammel Stadium in Scottsboro. Until next year, march on!
