Members of the Clearfield Area Bison Marching Band will also be participating in the “Clearfield/Centre County Band Show” scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday at the L.T. Drivas Memorial Field at the West Branch High School.
Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for children and senior Citizens. Those bands participating in the show from Clearfield County will be Clearfield, Glendale, Moshannon Valley, Philipsburg-Osceola and West Branch. Those from Centre County will be Bald Eagle, Bellefonte and Penns Valley.
All bands will be performing their halftime shows. Plaques will be awarded to each band at the close of the evening.
