More than a dozen high-school marching bands throughout the area will strut their stuff this Saturday in Unionville; on Oct. 29, a lineup that includes some of the same competitors and some new ones will take the field in Coatesville.

"March on the Brandywine" at Unionville High will begin this Saturday at 6 p.m. and will feature top talent from the region in friendly competition. The stage will shift to Coatesville  Area Senior High on Oct. 29 for "Steel City - Battle of the Bands," beginning at 5 p.m. The Coatesville event will feature an exhibition by the Lukens Band, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary. Founded in 1911, the band, whose members range in age from teens to 80s, performs in concerts and parades all over the southeastern Pennsylvania.

  Both events will conclude with an awards ceremony. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors. Unionville High School is located at 750 Unionville Rd., Kennett Square; Coatesville Area Senior High is 1425-45 E. Lincoln Hwy.
