The 24th annual Franklin County Classic Band Competition will be held Saturday, Oct. 3 at Franklin County High School.

High school bands from the region will compete to show their progress in this year's marching band season, said Denise Aspell, FCHS band director.

There will be a silent auction in the Samuel Hawkins Central Gymnasium at 4 p.m., Aspell said.

The event begins at 6 p.m. with the National Anthem played by the eighth-grade band at Benjamin Franklin Middle School.

Then, the bands will perform.

The awards ceremony will begin at 8:30 p.m.

Concessions will be offered by the FCHS Band Boosters.

The public is invited for "a wonderful day of music and fun," Aspell said.
