Expect at least 76 trombones and many other musical instruments filling the air with familiar tunes May 7 at the Northern California Marching Band Festival in downtown Fairfield.
Some 20 high school and middle school marching bands from Solano County and beyond will perform at the all-day event.
The festival kicks off at 8 a.m. with a jazz concert at the Downtown Theatre at the Fairfield Center for Creative Arts, followed at 10:30 a.m. by a marching band percussion competition along Texas Street. A concert performance at the Fairfield Community Center, 1000 Kentucky St., is planned later in the day.
