The 2019 Vista Ridge Marching Festival is on 10/5/2019.   Registration opens 2/18, here is the link to the Festival site:

 

http://www.vrhsband....rchingfestival/

 

JOHN GUPTON STADIUM 
200 S. VISTA RIDGE BLVD. 
CEDAR PARK, TEXAS 78613

 

Would like to see who's planning on attending this year!

 

 

Interesting Fact:  Both the current 5A (Cedar Park) and 6A (Vista Ridge) UIL State Marching Champions share Gupton Stadium as their Home Stadium.

 

Not sure if anyone knows if the top two classification reigning State Champions have ever been from the same City and shared the same stadium?   Is this a first?

I'm glad to see Hutto go to more events. Round Rock is right down the street from them, so I know a ton of their members. I'm super excited to see how they evolve over the next few years.

I really enjoyed their show this past year and I think their results at BOA San Antonio really surprised everyone. I'm excited to see how they continue to improve this year!

Them going to SA at all surprised me quite a bit. They really came out of left field (or side 1 lol) there.

Im very interested to see Akins high school. I believe they recently got a new staff and to my knowledge, they achieved their highest placement at UIL area this past season since 2010 (?) Expecting good things!

I am as well!    It would be good to see them moving into the top groups again.   I think last time they went to BOA San Antonio was 2010 and the last top 10 in State was 2006.  I don't see them yet on the list for BOA San Antonio but hope they go!

Sounds like this contest is becoming the premier marching contest of Austin outside of BOA!

I did put in the pitch that both 5A and 6A current state champs have Gupton as the home Stadium, not sure if that made any difference this year but hope it helped :)‚Äč

I wouldn't count out TMC just yet! There are some heavy hitters in both contests!

How has Connally HS been the past few years? I remember them being very very strong in 2013 with their Copland show, but havent heard much lately.

They lost their director after that year if I recall and never fully recovered. They still make area finals but haven't made state since 2013.
