BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Some of the best color guard teams from around the northeast competed at Lehigh University Saturday.
Dozens of high school teams competed at the Winter Color Guard International.
"A lot of people think of it as marching band, but once you see what's going on, it's demanding," said Jamie Rightmyer of Winter Guard International.
Each team picks a song and a theme. The routines are part performance, dance, and skill.
"It's challenging at times. It's different than dance, we have flags, rifles, and they're heavy," said Sophia Payton, one of the competitors.
The winner of the competition will compete at the national competition later this spring.
