Saturday, October 13, 2018 the Potosi Band Boosters and Potosi Trojan Marching Band will host the 16th Annual Bi-State Marching Invitational in Downtown Potosi and at Potosi High School. This year 22 bands from Missouri and Illinois will compete. The public is being invited to attend both the parade and the field show competition. The parade is Free to the public and the field show admission is $8 for Adults and $5 for Seniors and Students. Some of the finest high school bands in the Bi-State area will be represented.  

"This festival has grown from 8 bands in 2003 to over 20 bands in 2018.  We host one of the most well attended and competitive marching events in the Mid-West. When other festivals seemed to struggle to get bands to attend, we have had years we have had to turn groups away. We encourage the public to come out and enjoy a day full of music and visual excitement. Your attendance will help support your local Potosi Band Program and is much appreciated," commented Director Jeff Singer.  

A list of times for parade and field will is published this week (See 7A.)  The Potosi Band Boosters have expressed thanks to all the businesses and patrons that support the P.H.S. school band program.  Thank You!
