Band Festival Weekend
This is a very busy weekend. Not only is it Memorial Day weekend, but it is also Band Festival in Mason City, Iowa, the famous "River City" that Meridith Willson wrote about "76 Trombones". I know I didn't spell his name correctly but everyone knows about him. This is the 76th year of the Band Festival and they are rounding up 76 people to march with their 76 Trombones in the big parade.It is quite a celebration with lots of food vendors and excitement. People come from miles around and towns are very proud to be chosen to march their bands in the big parade.
