 PELHAM – The sun set on Pelham as excited students walked in the annual homecoming parade and threw candy out to those in attendance.

Pelham City Schools held its annual homecoming parade on Wednesday, Oct. 26 at Pelham City Park which drew a large crowd.

“The crowd seems to grow every year,” Communications Manager Nicole Knight said. “It was fantastic seeing so many families enjoying the parade all along Bearden Road.”

Knight said the crowd was energized and elated to be experiencing the homecoming parade.

“From the moment all the floats started lining up at Pelham High School, everyone was full of energy,” Knight said. “The atmosphere was really lively and lighthearted. Then, when the parade started, everyone along the parade route matched that same level of enthusiasm.”

According to Knight, it is always a pleasure to see school spirit exhibited during homecoming week.

“It’s a fun event that people look forward to year after year,” Knight said. “There’s nothing better than seeing everyone decked out in Pelham colors and coming together to celebrate our community.”

Knight said that the Pelham City Schools, Pelham Parks & Recreation, Pelham Police and Fire Departments and the Pelham City Schools Foundation are all appreciated as they work together to carry out events like these.
