Playing musical instruments before an audience takes lots of talent. But more importantly, it takes a lot of practice.
Saturday, some of the panhandle's most talented high school bands showed off all their hard work during the Florida Bandmasters Association District Two marching band festival.
More than a dozen high school bands from Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty, Washington and Walton Counties took part.
Its important to note that it's not a competition between the bands. Bands are judged on their musicality, precision and audience appeal. More than one-hundred parents and boosters gathered at Tommy Oliver stadium to cheer on their favorite bands.
