Marching bands Saturday night at Hawkins Stadium

Looking to do something cool  Saturday night?
Maybe listen to some good band music and help our community's youngsters?
Then check out the Florida Bandmasters Association District 11 marching band festival Saturday at Manatee High School's Hawkins Stadium.
It's the event's 24th year at MHS, 902 33rd St. Ct. W., Bradenton.
The event begins at 5 p.m.
More than 1,300 high school students representing 15 bands from six counties are scheduled to perform, including Charlotte, DeSoto, Hardee, Hillsborough, Manatee and Sarasota.
"This is a tremendous opportunity to see our local high school bands at their best,"  said Jim Bruce, Manatee's longtime director of bands. "The bands work all season toward this event and we encourage the community to come out and support the kids."
Each band is judged for its music, marching, percussion, general effect and auxiliary.
Tickets are $7 for ages 13 and up, $5 for ages 6-12, free for those under 6 and will be available at the festival.
Parking is $3 per car.
