Blue Ridge Mountain Marching Band Festival – October 13th!

The Mountain Life Team Blogger October 7, 2012

While you are in Blue Ridge visiting for Arts in the Park on this coming weekend of October 13th, you also must go by Fannin County High School, to hear the many sounds of 2,000 marching band members!  I love to hear so many talented kids playing the various instruments from drums, trombones, trumpets, flutes and much more!

There will be 22 high schools from many areas coming to Fannin County to show their musical talent.  Some of the schools are coming from as far as 150 miles away!  The bands consist of anywhere from 43 to 151 band members depending on the school!

Fannin County High School is located next to the Swan Drive In located in Blue Ridge.  The first band will begin playing at 1pm and the last band around 9:30pm. The fee is only $5.   Sounds like a great event to come to while you are taking a break from seeing all of the fabulous artists creations at Arts in the Park!
