SPEARFISH, S.D. -

The annual Black Hills State University Swarm Week parade in Spearfish celebrated the university and its relationship with the city, Saturday.

Swarm Week is BHSU’s homecoming celebration and this year’s theme was “Swarmin’ in Paradise.” All events had a tropical theme, including a luau and a fire throwing performance by PyroTechnic. Leis and ukuleles were also given out.

Saturday’s parade attracted students and alumni,, along with Spearfish residents, and demonstrated the close relationship between the university and community.

This year’s Swarm Week King and Queen were especially proud to represent their school.

“It’s awesome to be able to represent your school and a school that you go to and that you feel so fond of,” said Sarah Maka, the Swarm Week Queen.

“I feel being in this position is [a symbol] of tons of school spirit and that we’re proud of where we go to school,” added Bradley Branson, the Swarm Week King. “We’re proud to call Black Hills State [home] and at the end of May, our alma mater.”

Saturday’s parade was also attended by 1967 Swarm Queen Linda Nowell for her class’ 50th reunion.
