More than 30 high school bands from across the state will step foot on Cajun Field Saturday as they participate in the 2019 Louisiana Showcase of Marching Bands State Championship. Competition begins at 8 a.m.
The showcase is co-sponsored by Lafayette Music and the Pride of Acadiana Marching Band and provides an opportunity for bands to perform for large crowds. It's a chance for the bands to earn recognition and awards.
The Pride of Acadiana, UL Lafayette's marching band, is featured in exhibition each year right before the awards ceremony.
There is no entrance fee for the bands and all profits are returned to the participating bands or donated to UL for use in scholarships designated for future band directors.
