The Marion County Marching Knights hosted Knightfest Saturday at the high school. Russell County (which is lead by former Marion County band director Curtis Irvin) won the competition with a score of 86.65. Estill County was the reserve grand champion with an 84.125. The Marching Knights did not compete, but they did perform their piece, “The Clockmaker’s Dream” before the final results were announced. 


Marion County Director Curtis Bennett was pleased with the Marching Knights performance.

“We made a lot of progress just Thursday and Friday.”

Now the Marching Knights have one week to prepare for the Class AAAA quarterfinal competition on Saturday, Oct. 19, at Madison Southern High School in Berea. The Marching Knights are scheduled to perform at 1:45 p.m.
