Celebrating Women for the Real World

Homecoming Parade

G2 and M’s High School has a Homecoming parade each year that travels around their Elementary and Middle schools. It is funny that both of our boys decided in Kindergarten that they were going to play football so that they could ride the fire truck in this parade.

Sometimes life in Stepford is kinda fun!

    I remember the parades for Homecoming in my hometown too… our current little city doesn’t do Homecoming parades… but the cheerleaders and football players ride in the city celebration parade in July.

    I am always just such a proud Mom to see the kids out there. πŸ™‚

    It is fun, isn’t it. Yesterday was son’s homecoming parade. Jammed up traffic here on the westside pretty good but so what. And they got out of school early, so it’s all good for them.

    That’s so cool! We had parades in college that we made floats for, but not in High School! What is it that makes riding on a firetruck so fun? I remember that was the coolest thing ever when I was little. πŸ™‚

    We didn’t get to have a parade. God knows my hometown has parades for everything else but not for Homecoming.

    OHHH, I sooo loved homecoming parades in high school. Each class would scout out a “secret” location (usually a classmates father’s business warehouse in our case) take a week to build an “awesomely horrible” float to try to beat the other classes. We would then white wash a street intersection that the rival team would take to get to the football field (basically telling ’em we’d stomp em and such loving things) and hold a huge bonfire pep-rally followed by a cook out. Loved it. (and of course after that, stayed out past curfew with each class trying to “egg” eachother running all over town in our old beater cars!)
    Hope the boys had a blast!
