Then again, the boys' school doesn't do the parade with all the floats and all that crap, either. At the football game they just introduce the people nominated for the homecoming court and announce who was voted king and queen. Each of the four grades decorates a corner of the fence around the football stadium.
Back home all the school clubs would make a float and there would be a parade around the stadium. I don't remember now if the parade was before the game or during halftime. I had to ride the French Club float one year dressed up as a Native American because the team we were playing were the Chiefs. The experience sucked. LOL
