Due to thunderstorms, the state marching band festival at Pella was postponed Saturday.

The festival is now being held Thursday. The Washington High School marching band will take part in the contest. Band Director Don Hughes shares this year’s show is The Water Goblin, based on a Chzekoslovakian folk tale warning people to not get too close to the water. The Demons are led by drum majors Meredith Raber and Meghan Newman. Pella is also the host site for Mid-Prairie and Highland.
