We live close to our neighborhood high school. Close enough to hear the marching band practice and close enough to for our street fill-up with parking during football season. One of the fun things that comes along with living close to the high school is that we get to see the Homecoming Parade. Back when I was in high school (~ a million years ago), the floats were driven around the track during halftime at the football game. Our school does it during the day around the neighborhood. I don’t know why for sure, but I’m guessing the newly renovated multi-million dollar football and track might have something to do with it.
My kids were thrilled to watch the parade — although some of the content might have been a little more PG than I care for, it didn’t seem to register with my kids. They were just thrilled to be getting candy thrown at them.
