The Southwestern marching band will hold a Halloween performance of its 2012 show "The Sword, the Stone, and the Dragon" today behind the high school.

The public is invited to the event, which is free. The band will showcase its performance twice between 5:30 and 6 p.m. In case of rain or bad weather, the event will be moved inside.

This year, the Southwestern marching band has had nine public performances. It won first place at the Salem invitational Oct. 6 and earned a gold rating at the Indiana State School Music Association District competition Sept. 29.
