The Invitational Contest provides many  area marching bands the opportunity to perform in a competitive environment before the Regional and National contests begin in a few weeks. This opportunity allows the marching band members to gain confidence and perfect their performances prior to the Bands of America Championship contests. The Invitational also acts as a fundraiser for the Castle Band Boosters, which supports the band financially.
