We have been to a few of the local homecoming parades in the past and they are always lots of fun, and the high schoolers seem to enjoy it when there are lots of little kids around to clap and wave at them, and the kids love the festive floats, the candy, and seeing the big kids at the school they might get to go to when they're older! No matter what Siouxland team you're cheering for, there's tons of homecoming fun just around the corner!
