Marching band students from Killdeer and nine other rural communities in North Dakota came together May 10 to form the Southwest Marching Band.

The large SW Marching Band proudly made its way through the streets of Bismarck for the Band Night Parade, creating one of the largest musical ensembles, and showed their musical prowess as they performed Jon Bon Jovi’s hit “You Give Love a Bad Name.”

The band began marching at 6:30 p.m., following Bismarck’s parade route – starting at the North Dakota State Capitol building, down Sixth Street to Avenue C, then down Fifth Street to the Bismarck Civic Center.

Students from Killdeer High School joined other musically-talented students from Belfield, Richardton, Killdeer, Halliday, South Heart, New England, Scranton, Bowman, Hettinger and Dickinson Trinity.

The parade celebrated its 40th anniversary this year, since its founding in 1970. The parade attracted bands from across the state, from South Dakota, Montana and Canada.
