SM North parade celebrates homecoming weekend

It was homecoming weekend at SM North, which included a parade down Johnson Drive Friday afternoon and the homecoming dance Saturday night.

Although the football team was unsuccessful in its outing Friday night, it did not dampen the enthusiasm generated around the celebration. A bonfire and pep rally earlier in the week kicked off the activities. Here are a few scenes from the parade in perfect weather Friday afternoon.
