Quick news: Trumpeter swans spotted at GV Lake
The Creston Panther Marching Band placed fifth in the morning and evening shows last Saturday at Valleyfest in Des Moines. In all, 12 bands competed in the invite-only event.
"The competition is always stiff at Valleyfest," said Mike Peters, CHS band director. "It's the best of the best. That said, this is the best we have ever done at Valleyfest. Our band really brought it. I was very happy with the performances."
