Bands will start playing at 11:00 am, and each band is limited to a 45-minute concert. There is no admission charge. Persons can come spend the day, listening to some fine bands. It will be held, rain or shine, since the entire pavilion is under cover.

Conductor Jerrold Jimmerson states, “We are honored to have been included in the day’s schedule, and to be able to present many of the songs that Karl King wrote to the hundreds of people that attend this event.It would well be worth the short drive to Boone to hear some of the finest municipal bands in the area.”
