FZN River City Showcase
The Fort Zumwalt North Panther Pride Band is proud to present the 5th Annual FZN River City Showcase! This event promises to be one of the true highlights of the marching season. Bands will be classified by MSHSAA football classifications. During the prelim round bands will be mixed, with the performance order determined by date of entry. The top 12 bands (including automatic class winners) will advance to finals competition. Bands will compete for caption awards (Outstanding Music, Visual, General Effect) and placement awards. Featuring an All-Star adjudication team from the rosters of Bands of America, Drum Corps International, and Winter Guard International, this festival will also hold a judges critique at the end of the competition for interested band directors. All judges will be from outside the state of Missouri.
The Ft. Zumwalt North High School football stadium features field turf and a large set of home bleachers that sits very close to the field since there is no track. It is an ideal setting for an outstanding day of marching band performances. The FZN River City Showcase will be expanding to 24 bands this year in preliminary competition. Any extra bands will be put on a waiting list.
