The Wilsonville High School had their annual Homecoming parade Friday, displaying old cartoon themed floats.

The usually quiet, suburban street of Meadow Lane was packed last week. Community members lined the sidewalks and peered down the suburban road as the Wilsonville High School fight song neared conclusion.

On Friday, Oct. 1, students and staff from Wilsonville High School participated in the annual Homecoming parade for the first time since 2019.

After a class vote, led by the student council, the homecoming parade theme was "old cartoons."

Featured in the parade were the student body, the football team, the dance and cheerleading team, and the band. Students from all grade levels bounded down the streets alongside extravagant floats decorated around old-style cartoons.

In an assembly line, the freshman class introduced the parade with an extravagant Mickey Mouse-themed float, decked with a giant, blow-up Mickey head. Following in a second float, sophomores crammed onto a cargo carrier bed that was decorated with a giant volcano and palm trees to display their pick: "Dora the Explorer."

Next up, students dressed as every member of the "Scooby Doo" gang bounded down the streets alongside floats that resembled the Mystery Machine van.

In the final float, the senior class made their entrance, the lyrics from the "SpongeBob Squarepants" theme song echoing through the street. The phrase "Four Years Later" was painted on the back of their float, as a tribute to their time at the school.

After the parade, students, faculty and community members flooded the football field for performances by the cheerleading and dance team. The performances were in recognition of the school's football team and finished with a vote for the best float. The seniors were named the winners.
