The clock turned to 5 and this year’s annual homecoming parade started. The parade was held Tuesday, Oct. 10 on Main Street in Broken Arrow and many people, young as well as old, faced the cold front and came to support the parade.

The theme for this homecoming week was “the happiest place on earth” with the overall theme Disney. The theme was very represented with everything from Minnie Mouse Tigettes to an “Alice in Wonderland” float.

“I really liked watching the parade,” senior Aubrey Patty said. “It was nice to see so many people from Broken Arrow come together to celebrate homecoming, and I loved seeing all the small kids showing so much school spirit.”

The homecoming parade has been a proud tradition at BAHS for many years and a great event for the Broken Arrow community to attend.

“I believe that this year’s homecoming parade was a success due to the large crowd that showed,” senior Cole Kruse said. “We started preparing for the parade in the beginning of June so that any group wanting to be in the parade had time to submit applications.”

The Pride of Broken Arrow, BA Cheer, Tiger athletes, and members of the homecoming court were among those who participated in the parade. The homecoming court also drove in Thunderbird cars provided by the Tulsa Classic Thunderbird Club.

“Being a part of the Homecoming Court was my favorite part of the parade,” Kruse said. “I was able to ride in the president of the Thunderbird Club’s 1957 Thunderbird through the parade and it was a really cool experience.”

This tradition is enjoyed by those who are new to it and alumni who attend each year.

“I think that the homecoming parade is an important tradition because it brings people together,” said sophomore Cat Schlesner who is a part of color guard. “We prepared for the parade by practicing in the aux gym and exercised as well.”

The homecoming week is far from over, with the “pink out” homecoming game coming up Friday, Oct. 13 and the homecoming dance on Saturday, Oct. 14.
