What a great Weekend in Wildwood!

Congratulations to all performers, directors, and everyone involved in providing hundreds of fantastic performances for the thousands of spectators!

The Weekend was filled with outstanding competitions involving percussion, dance, color guard and twirling, and also featured the excellent jazz band performances. New this year was the Percussion Showcase, a three-hour event where individuals and small ensembles performed for a large crowd in the Starlight Ballroom. Hopefully, you also caught a glimpse of TOBY, the TOB mascot as he roamed the hallways of the convention center.

Be sure to keep your calendar clear for next year's Weekend in Wildwood! Reserve the dates of April 28 through May 1, 2016, to enjoy another wonderful weekend at the Jersey Shore!
