This would have been the 72nd year for Band Day in Hannibal. It's an event that draws more than 30 area schools.  According to the Hannibal Pirates Athletics and Activities Page,

"This was a very difficult decision to make, but we did not feel that we could safely hold this even with so many schools planning on attending."
