The Marching Band Fanfare was held on Saturday, November 2 at Stuart W. Cramer High School.  It is an annual tradition for the high school marching bands in Gaston County. The event gives students an opportunity to perform their halftime shows in front of an audience, see what other bands are doing, and enjoy fellowship with each other.
