Homecoming 2023: Annual parade includes 18 floats that showcase students, clubs, activities and sports

The parade was watched by members of the community Wednesday, Sept. 19

The annual Homecoming parade made its way through Grey Oaks Wednesday, Sept. 19, beginning and ending at Prairie Ridge Elementary. The parade consisted of 18 floats that represented school classes, clubs, athletics, Homecoming candidates and the lunch ladies. 

Some of the floats that participated in the parade even had themes. The Silver Star’s float was Charlie’s Angels themed, volleyball’s theme was Men In Black, the lunch ladies float was Scooby Doo themed, theater’s was 50s themed and the choir float was decades themed. 

Senior Guss Miller explains why her float decided to have a theme.

“I was on the choir float,” Miller said. “We chose to do our float as decades themed because our theme for our spring pops concert this school year is going to be decades themed. We thought it would be a good way to connect the two.”

Additionally, Homecoming candidate senior Olivia Moore reflects on her feelings about the parade.

“The parade was so much fun and such a great experience. I was so honored to be a candidate,” Moore said. “Riding in the parade was super special to me because my grandpa was driving the car my fellow Homecoming candidate [senior] Jacob Morton and I were sitting in. My dad also rode in the passenger seat and I loved that they were the ones who got to drive me around during the parade.” 

Going into detail, Miller describes why she thought the Homecoming parade was important to the local community.

“I think the parade is important to the local community because it is a day where parents with little kids can see what they can look forward to when their kid gets into high school,” Miller said. “It also promotes a lot of community building as well.”

Similarly to Miller, Moore talks about why the parade was so important to Mill Valley.

“I do believe the parade is important to Mill Valley because it’s a lot of fun,” Moore said. “All of the students can get together to experience the feeling of excitement and we can show our community our clubs, sport teams, band and more.”
