On Oct. 26, Mt. Carmel High School played host to 35 marching bands for their 37th Annual Mt. Carmel Tournament of Bands, filling the school and surrounding community with beautiful sounds. The Mt. Carmel Tournament of Bands is known all over Southern California as a premier showcase of top high school marching band field shows and parades, and is one of only three band tournaments in all of San Diego County to offer a parade competition. These hardworking bands ranged from as many as 30 members, to full-scale bands that filled up the field with their pageantry.

The tournament was in full attendance and many vendors followed, including  a variety of food and retail items for purchase. For more information on the visiting bands and their scores, visit www.mchsbandtournament.com.
