Update: Homecoming Pageantry Parades Downtown

Students in the Golden Regiment Band marched down Washington Street and many other students rode on various vehicles. The theme of the four class floats was decades with Seniors choosing the 70’s. Juniors decorated with things that recall the 80’s, Sophomores the 50’s and Freshman chose the future with influence from the movie Back to the Future on their float.
