The South Island Marching Championships will be held at ILT Stadium Southland on Sunday, December 3.
Twenty-two teams will compete in under-12, under-16, seniors and masters events.
Marching Southland representatives Tania Hill and Pauline Ward said there would be four teams from Southland and they had high expectations.
“We have three teams from Invercargill and one from Gore. We would like to see two local teams in the top six and at least one in the top three,” Mrs Ward said.
Mrs Hill said the marching would be spectacular to watch.
