BHS marching band entertains the neighborhood

The Ballard High School band marched up and down East Ballard streets this evening, practicing for the Norwegian Constitution Day parade.

The practice march is an annual tradition and a neighborhood favorite.

The Syttende Mai parade is coming on May 17th. By the way, this year’s Grand Marshall is Norwegian Ambassador Wegger Chr. Strommen.

Plus: See last year’s photos and video of the parade

Thanks BHS for marching up our street yesterday evening! It was a great surprise. We live near Whittier elem. and at first I thought wow, those elementary kids can really play! But then it kept getting louder and louder and soon there were a hundred marchers passing by. Please come by every day!

Uniform, Repetitive, Drill training.
Preparation for repetitious team desk job work?
Looks like a sorry reality to me.
