FORT DODGE, Iowa — Beneath a darkened and stormy sky, the Charles City High School marching band performed the moody “Dark Knight” movie theme.

Perfect.

The rain also worked well with the theme to “Pirates of the Caribbean.”

The marching Comets, whose show theme this year was “Heroes and Villians,” nailed their performance in the Iowa High School Marching Band Festival in Fort Dodge. They earned a Division I overall rating, the highest possible.

The show also included the theme from “The Incredibles.”
