The night of Saturday, Oct. 4, might have been frigid, but the music played at Providence Catholic High School was blazing hot.

Marching bands from 18 local area and Northern Illinois high schools participated in Providence’s third annual Marching Band Invitational competition on the high school’s Matt Senffner Field. More than 10,000 people attended, making it the largest event hosted at the high school.
