SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – The Sioux City Municipal Band is celebrating a major milestone with an exhibit at the public museum.

On display is 100 years of the band’s history, from previous band uniforms and instruments to photographs.

The municipal band exhibit runs through June 28 at the Sioux City Public Museum. This year’s band opens the summer concert series June 2 and Grandview Park.
