The homecoming parade has participants of all ages and walks of life. It takes place on Thurs. Oct. 8 starting at the Montgomery City Lot and walking to SJHS. The parade begins at 7:30 p.m.

“The parade will be a lot of fun and you will get a lot of candy so bring a bag,” said junior and parade committee head Max Weiss.

Weiss has been on the parade committee for the past three years and it is his second year as committee head. He will allow the parade to run smoothly.

Student Council attempts to include people of all ages. They contact the elementary schools and senior citizen homes to see if they want to participate. In addition, they include many high school groups.

“I’m so excited to watch this year’s parade. If I do get to be in the parade [for homecoming court] in the convertible it would make me happy because I wouldn’t have to walk,” said freshman Sivan Yiochi.

Last year, the parade was changed so that participants could walk. This makes it safer for the participants and more fun for people watching.

“I can’t wait to watch everyone on the various floats. It will be a great way to kick off the homecoming weekend,” said junior Leila Kazemi.
