After three years of planning, El Paso will host the Historically Black Colleges and Universities marching band competition for the first time. The Battle of El Dorado will be showcased at 2 p.m. May 2 at the Sun Bowl Stadium. The community will get to witness unsurpassed showmanship and student-musicians’ talent.

With a mission to bring diversity to the community, Sports X, an El Paso-based organization, along with UTEP and Ticketmaster, collaborated to bring a much-needed educational aspect to El Paso. The main focus of the event is to offer college scholarships in all aspects of marching band to El Paso area students. read more
