Homecoming Crowley: Downtown alive to sons and daughters!

Main Street in Crowley, Louisiana, is Parkerson Avenue.  The local high school’s parade traverses the southbound side of downtown for about six blocks and returns up the northbound side to end at the same point of beginning.

The Thursday parade here, like most everywhere in small town USA, anticipates the Friday night game, followed by a weekend of reunion dances and receptions as sons and daughters of the local school reassemble from the distant compass points to which they’ve scattered post-graduation.

I wonder if homecoming is different in large city schools?  Out here in the country, we’ve got it down pat.  There’s no place like home!
