Last year, we asked you who was the best marching band in the land, and you responded with a wave of support for your favorite halftime performers!  Tens of thousands of votes came pouring in for every band kid that leaves it all on the field every Friday night during the high school football season.  After all of the dust settled and the final fanfare was played, the winner emerged from this very category!  Hailing from North West Louisiana, the reigning champion the Haughton High School Big Red Buccaneer Band will be defending their title of Best High School Marching Band in the Ark-La-Tex.

Now it's time to select this year's best - cast your vote below, and make sure you encourage other band-fans to do the same.  The only way to secure the title for your school's band is to share it with other members, band directors, boosters, parents, students - basically everyone you know!  You can vote once every 3 hours, so get to it!

Voting is open from now until Thursday, October 4th at midnight (11:59:59 pm).  Once the voting is over, the top 3 from each category will move on to the final vote!

Mark time, mark!
