It’s Lancer Day!

The day for the most intense display of Lancer pride in Prairie Village all year has arrived. The annual massing of all things SM East will hit the streets at 2 p.m. this afternoon.

The parade will make its way from SM East at 75th Street and Mission Road heading down Mission past 71st Street. The celebration then turns into the Village Shops where it hits a crescendo with a pep rally in advance of the season-opening football game against Olathe South at the SM North stadium.

Motorists should be aware that Mission Road will be closed to traffic along the parade route during the festivities.

The parade theme this year is occupations. We can’t wait to see what vocations the young Lancers will be representing on the floats. We have inside information that one group is yearning for careers as explorers. Keep an eye out for Indiana Jones.
