2017 Highlander Invitational

September 23rd, 2017 – Highlander Invitational

The Floyd Central Marching Band and Emerald Guard will host bands from all over the state during our Highlander Invitational on September 23, 2017.  This is our BIG FUNDRAISER, which benefits the entire FC band program throughout the school year.  If a member from each band family volunteers some time at this event, our needs will be easily met.

Last year’s Invitational was amazing!  We hosted 23 bands; the most we have ever had.  Combined with spectators, we had over 6,000 people in attendance.  Let’s make this year even better!!
