Around Town: 2019 Homecoming Parade

Thanks to the ongoing construction on Springfield Pike, the route for 2019 Wyoming Homecoming Parade was altered to travel from Worthington Avenue, north on Burns Avenue, to Wyoming High School instead of the usual Pike route. Everyone had an opinion on the altering of this annual tradition, and concerns were aplenty (“the floats may hit the low hanging trees” or “Burns is too narrow for fire trucks and spectators” were matched with less safety related concerns such as “we have always watched the parade from Madden’s yard – what do we do now?”). But rest assured, Wyoming, it all went smoothly – even though the floats did brush some trees, the street was too narrow (parents don’t let your little ones dash out in front of fire trucks for candy!), and the Pike parties migrated east for the five minute spectacle. Whether enjoying from the inside or the curbside, the Wyoming Homecoming Parade tradition is still one of Wyoming’s most anticipated events, no matter where it occurs! 

Thanks to all the parade participants:  the Wyoming High School Marching Band and Colorguard; the Classes of 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023; all the brownie and girl scout troops; and the Wyoming High School Alumni Association. And a big thank you to Jason Miller for sharing some great photos of all the fun and the action!

How to be a part of the parade when you’re on crutches? Mia’s solution was to decorate her wheelchair like a flying carpet!

Members of every class were part of the percussion line. 

Wyoming Middle School Cheerleaders were ready to supply the spectator crowds with candy.
