The Davis High Homecoming parade started in Central Park and made its way to DHS with music and cheering on Friday, Sept. 30. Many people watched from their front gardens and were gathered all the way down B Street to see the floats.
The parade was lead by the pep band, who played upbeat music that was audible before it was visible. The Davis Police and Firefighters joined in the fun and were part of the parade.
Following the Pep Band came the Grand Marshal, counselors and office staff who were riding bikes while wearing DHS football jerseys. Next came a selection of sports teams that included football, tennis and water polo as well as the dance and cheer teams. Homecoming royalty and many of the schools clubs also joined in on the parade.
“I liked how everyone was cheering and the people in the floats seemed like they were having fun,” sophomore Lauren Limburg said.
The parade was wrapped up by the sophomore, junior and senior floats. They were decorated according to the classes theme which were Hawaii, Las Vegas and the Amazon Jungle respectively.
“I personally really liked the juniors’ float because they dressed up and really made it look like you were in Las Vegas for a second,” sophomore Hannah Lybbert said.
