Area marching bands gathered at the Fitch High School stadium Aug. 26 for the 42nd annual Fitch Band Night.

Participating bands included McDonald, Springfield, Ursuline, Lowellville, Canfield and Boardman marching bands, as well as the Austintown Fitch Marching Band.

The Fitch band is a military-style marching band. The others will demonstrate a show band aspect, said Julie Nochta, president of the band parents.

“It’s nice to have the other bands in the area,” she said. “We’ll have some variety this evening.”

The Fitch band took seats in bleachers set up on the football field so they could watch the performances of their guests and cheer them on. The other bands filled one set of bleachers and spectators filled the bleachers on the other side of the field.

Chris Berni, Fitch High School principal, welcomed the bands to the event.

“I would also like to thank all the families and supporters who are here tonight to support all the kids from all the bands,” he said. “We know you all have a lot of things going on, and thank you for putting your children first.”

The event started with the Fitch color guard presenting the American flag and the Fitch marching band playing the National Anthem. Each band then took a turn performing.

The Fitch marching band director is Wesley O’Connor.

Refreshments and a 50/50 raffle were also available.
