Bands throughout the tri-state, marched into Elwood Olsen Stadium on Saturday, September 28 for the 22nd annual Starfest.

Hosted by North High school, bands come to be judged on music performance, music general effect and marching execution. Percussion and Color guard are judged separately.

Brian Cole, Head Band director for North High, says that the community comes together to support the festival.

“Our parents have been going hardcore on this for the last two months. We’ve been meeting weekly, the last three weeks, just to make sure we’ve got all the details in place.
