It’s the first time since World War II that the event has not been held. Band Festival organizer Kativa Weitzel says it was a heart-breaking decision that had to be made.   “We just knew it was what’s best for our community and our social responsibility. It’s a tradition that won’t die, and in years to come, we will still have a festival. It was really sad to do.” Weitzel says many people have reached out to Band Festival organizers to express their support of the decision to cancel this year’s event.   “It’s very bittersweet this year going into Band Festival week with no parade, and 76 Trombones on Saturday, and the history behind it. We’ve had so many people reach out to us and saying how much this tradition means to their family, and how next year it’s going to be so sweet having a festival that got postponed. It’s something that will go down in history. It really impacts our community members and the students. I remember going to the parade as a kid and seeing my friends march, and all those things, and all of our grandparents were in it. It’s just a tradition that can’t be brought down.” Weitzel says there are several events that are being incorporated into what’s being called “Band Festival Spirit Week”: == On Friday night at 8:15, “Betty & the Gents” will perform on the Band Festival Facebook page Click here to take you to the North Iowa Band Festival Facebook pagelast_img read more
