Parkway North Color Guard

What is Color Guard?

Color Guard is the musical interpretation of the music played by the award winning North Marching Viking Band at half time of home football games, marching in the Homecoming Parade and competing with the band in fall competitions. Our routines include dancing, tossing flags, and working with rifles. We illustrate the point the music is trying to convey to the listeners through a combination of technique and dance.
