The 11th Annual Pinecrest Band Fest was held Saturday.  Of the many bands that performed, Moore County had two of its own in the competition, North Moore and Union Pines. Pinecrest, as host, did not compete but played an exhibition. 

Union Pines’ day had begun with the funeral of one of their own, Samantha Davis.

As Union Pines took the field for competition, members of the other bands stood and saluted the Marching Vikings.  Finally, at the end of the competitions, two sets of balloons were released in honor of two band members who had lost their lives.

Balloons were released in honor of Union Pines Marching Vikings Band member, Samantha Davis, and the other set was released in honor of Midway Marching Band member, Jackson Barefoot who lost his life at the start of the school year in a biking accident.
