East Kentwood to host one of the largest marching band competitions in West Michigan

The competition will be intense down on the football field, with a stadium full of cheering fans, at East Kentwood High School this Saturday, October. 21. Uniformed players will be suited up in their school colors, every movement planned, with the sole focus of trying for the best performance of the season. It’ll be a lot like the games you see in every football stadium across America, except for one thing, there will be no football.

 

In fact, this is no game at all. This event is the East Kentwood High School Falcon Marching Band Invitational, a marching band competition, and it’s happening from 2:30pm to 10:00pm.

 

It is a musical extravaganza and one of the biggest marching band shows in West Michigan, with twenty high school bands from around West Michigan slated to compete for top honors.
