For the past 30 years, the L.D. Bell Blue Raider Band has taken to the street in a fantastic demonstration of musicianship, athletics, endurance and fun! Our yearly March-a-Thon was created as a way to promote the band in the community and to raise money for student band fees. The award-winning Blue Raider Band is one of the largest student groups at L.D. Bell with over 250 participants! We are proud to have you join us at our 2023 event. Alternating between neighborhoods in Hurst and Bedford, this year's March-a-Thon includes two community stand-still performances, as well as music, cheers, chants, and stand-stills along the way. Is the March-a-Thon in or near your area? Grab your camp chairs and join us anywhere along the parade route for a fantastic time! This year's route will be through neighborhoods near L.D. Bell, with a community performance stop in the Half-Price Books parking lot, and will conclude at Bedford Heights Elementary. Join us for the 30th Annual March-a-Thon!
