This family-friendly event, now in its 35th year after a year hiatus, will allow patrons to enjoy “the good seats” at Autzen Stadium for a fraction of the cost of a football ticket. The festival is organized and hosted by the Oregon Marching Band, and is split into preliminary and finals competition.

    Can you tell me the name of the professional photographers who were selling photos of participants at the NWAPA Festival of Bands on November 4th? I bought some prints from them, but my granddaughter’s teammates would also like to buy photos. If you have any contact information for them, that would also be appreciated.
