The Swanton Marching Band Bulldog Bowl is back and scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 23 at the Swanton High School football field.

Fourteen area bands have been invited to perform and compete for trophies and a spot to perform at the state competition. Gates will open to spectators at 4 p.m. with a fee of $7 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens $5. Children five and under are free with a paying adult.

There will be concessions for sale as well as pie by the slice.

The main parking area will be at the Fisher Gym parking lot on Dodge Street with overflow parking at Swanton High School. All traffic for the event will be directed through the Dodge Street entrance of the high school. The Main Street entrance of Swanton High School will be closed to prevent non event drive through traffic from 3-11 p.m. in order to keep all participants safe.

Samantha Preisner, band director, and The Swanton Band Boosters are still looking for volunteers to help the day run smoothly. If you are 18 or older and would like to volunteer for a shift, contact Dawn Santchi at dsantchi@gmail.com.
