A huge crowd lined the outer edges of the Aledo High School campus to watch the annual Homecoming Parade that featured 35 floats representing different student activity groups and the 2016 Homecoming Court.
The theme of this year’s Homecoming Parade is “Bearcats Making History” and each float carried the theme.
And within each float, students from the respective activity groups tossed wrapped candy miniatures out to the waiting and eager youth that lined Buchanan Drive, Champions Drive, and the passageways next to the Daniel Ninth Grade Center and high school gym.
The parade also featured the four classes of the Homecoming Court parading in sporty convertibles: Senior court of Emma Haeussler, Kelsey Basler and Ellie Posey; junior court of Callyn Bennett and Grace Renforth; sophomore court of Kennedy Black and Alyssa Sheeran; and the freshman court of Dawsen Deller and Carlee Rogers.
The Homecoming Game will be at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30 at Bearcat Stadium as Aledo will face Saginaw High School.
