Music rocked Yankton on Saturday, starting at the Meridian Bridge, and concluding at Crane Youngworth Field.
Nineteen bands from around the region marched across the lower deck of the Meridian Bridge and through downtown in the Marching Competition of the annual March to the Meridian. Seven bands competed in the Field Competition at our football field, with the bleachers full of fans.
Gwen Wenisch, YHS Band Director, describes how the event went…
There was a short delay with an injury time out during the Field Competition, but the visiting band member was treated rapidly and reportedly doing well.
Wenisch talks about the impact events like this have on Yankton…
The band that traveled the furthest was Rapid City Central.
The March Champion was the Emerald Regiment from Pierre, while the Field Champion was Crofton. The Overall Grand Champion was Pierce, Nebraska.
