BENSON — Bands of all shapes and sizes marched through the streets of Benson on Monday evening for the annual Pioneerland Band Festival parade to celebrate Flag Day. Around 11 bands performed in the parade from area high schools in full bad attire. The celebration is held every year on Flag Day, June 14. Last year's parade was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
