FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Hundreds of members of high school bands from across the Central Valley and the state played loud and proud in Bulldog Stadium on Saturday.
The Sierra Cup Classic was an all-day event with 26 high school bands competing.
A judging panel evaluated each of their performances on visual effect, color guard, and many other categories.
"I think it's a stage like no other, whether they are thinking about pursuing music or a chance to perform for their fans," said Brandon Pollard of the Fresno State Marching Band. He added that all the students can now say, Hey, I marched in Bulldog Stadium!
This is the 21st year of the event.
