CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio State University Marching Band is playing at this year’s Circleville Pumpkin Show.

The Pumpkin Show’s Barry Keller tells the Circleville Herald (http://bit.ly/1D0ZLaA ) that the celebrated band is booked for the event’s Parade of Bands on Thursday night.

It’s the band’s third performance at the Pumpkin Show, one of Ohio’s largest annual festivals. The “greatest free show on earth” draws around 400,000 each year to the small town south of Columbus. The event, which opens Wednesday, has taken place since 1903.

Keller says about 100,000 people turned out for the annual Parade of Bands when the Ohio State band appeared in 2010.
