Homecoming parade: A Hamilton tradition

The Homecoming Parade has been a tradition for many years and has been enjoyed by many people . It’s fair to say the children of the community look forward to it every year. How could they not…who doesn’t love candy?

Hamilton has the parade to celebrate the Homecoming of friends and alumni with the major event of the week being the varsity football game.  The parade helps get the community pumped up for the game. Every year there are high aspirations for the parade.

The floats in the parade are mostly created by students in the high school, including the grade level floats, sports teams floats, as well as different floats for activities and clubs around the school.

“We always have high hopes for the parade,” said by Susan Alward, head coordinator of the Homecoming events/activities.

The route of the parade starts at the corner of 136th and 48th at 4:15 p.m., and will travel down 136th Avenue all the way to the high school.
