This past weekend, the Anderson High School Marching Highlanders competed at the 72nd Annual Indiana State Fair Band Day Competition. 43 bands from around the state competed in prelims and 16 advanced to the "Sweet Sixteen" night show finals. AHS earned 2nd place at both the prelims and finals. At the night show, they won the Visual General Effect caption. This makes the 61st time that the city of Anderson has had a band in the top 5 at State Fair Band Day.
