For 27 years, the Southeastern Washington Cavalcade of Bands has sent chills down the spines of visitors.
Those shivers were no doubt the result of some truly heart-pounding, upbeat, theatrical and downright exciting high school marching band music.
This year's event, which is Oct. 4 at Edgar Brown Stadium in Pasco, won't disappoint.
The preliminary competitor is from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The finals start at 6 p.m.
Hundreds of students from 28 high schools in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana will compete in various categories.
Tickets to the event are $14 for adults and $9 for students and senior citizens. Kids 5 and younger are free.
Advance tickets are available from any Kennewick or Pasco high school band student, Ted Brown Music in Richland or Captain Phil's Car Wash in Pasco.
