Homecoming Parade Braves the Weather

The world’s largest Homecoming parade couldn’t be deterred by a little rain this year. The parade, which included floats from more than 230 student organizations and alumni groups, made its way through campus and State College without a hitch.

Organizations showed their creativity with the floats, which ranged from a Toy Story theme to Club Croquet’s infamous row boat float. SNAP and Pi Lambda Phi’s float featured a live band. The highlight of the night was indisputably the Blue Band singing and dancing to Flo Rida’s Low in the middle of College Ave.

The Homecoming Court was featured in convertibles as they await the results of the king and queen voting, which will be announced tomorrow during the football game. Despite all the internet hate, Grand Marshal John Amaechi led the parade and received nothing but cheers from onlookers while he passed by my section. Amaechi was even leading “We Are!” chants along the route from his car.

The parade route was filled with onlookers even with the dreary weather, ultimately dispersing on North Burrowes Street leading up to the Guard the Lion Shrine event, while also kicking off this year’s homecoming weekend.
