The Hillsborough Band Parents Association hosted its 19th Annual Winterguard Show at Hillsborough High School on Saturday, February 2nd. The show was attended by a total of 32 competing winterguards and concluded with an exhibition performance by Hillsborough’s Winterguard. Mayor Frank DelCore was in attendance and participated in the presentation of awards.
Winterguard is an indoor colorguard activity derived from the outdoor activity that is part of the high school marching band. For this activity, instead of performing as a visual accent to the marching band, each winterguard team picks its own music to perform to. The winterguard teams are judged on talent, precision and creativity. There are multiple ways that winterguards perform using various equipment, including flags, rifles and sabers, props and dance moves to enhance their shows.
