This year in Collinsville, the homecoming parade was on a Thursday. In the past, schools would get out at 1:00 to attend the parade. This year, the parade took place starting at 6:30 PM. After the parade, there was a block party with games, food trucks, and lots of fun!
The Cardinal Connection staff was able to take pictures of the homecoming events throughout the day. The Thursday festivities was a huge success, and the town plans on continuing this tradition in the years to come.
