The world’s smallest jet, as well as a 1929 tri-motor Ford airplane will be among the highlights of the 23rd annual Fly/In Cruise/In plane, vehicle, tractor and transportation show Aug. 31.

All the proceeds from the event benefit the students in the band program at Marion High School, he said.

MHS band director Wayne Garrett said the event is a major fundraiser for them.

“It’s really important for our boosters because it allows them to make plans for where the band can go,” he said.

Garrett added that the band has not participated in competitive marching for several years, but they plan to start on the track circuit in the summer of 2014.
