The Ames Municipal Band performs a hymn each week.

      The final number was Karl King's best-known composition, Barnum and Bailey's Favorite.     While the last tune is performed, the bandshell lights change colors with the beats    Although not visible in this photo, towards the end of  Barnum and Bailey's Favorite, Five For Five came back on stage to help the Ames Band band give a fitting climax to Karl King's well-known masterpiece.
