Marching bands take over downtown Scottsbluff for Old West Weekend (updated with results)

Posted: Updated:

Trumpets, flutes, symbols, clarinets, drums, and synchronized marching took over downtown Scottsbluff Saturday.
 
Hundreds of students from schools around the panhandle marched down Broadway  for the 31st annual Old West Weekend.

The parade and field competition gave the bands the opportunities to strut their stuff and play their hearts out.

And for many, its an experience they wont forget. 
 
"It means a great deal we just get to come out here and show everybody what we can do, what we've been working on for the past couple months," said Bayard High School tenor saxophone player Malaki Belford.
 
"It means a lot, I mean we practice hard every morning at 7:30 every day," Alliance High School Jeffery Heusman said.
 
"We are a really tiny band with a lot of pride and we work really hard to get to where we are, and it means a lot to us," said Minatare High School drum major and saxophone player Maddie Ross.
 
"One band, one sound," Heusman said.
