Homecoming Parade

WHEN | This free community event is held every year in Fall.

WHERE | The exact route changes each year but it generally starts and ends at Westminster High School.

WHO | This event is for everyone who likes to see kids dressed up on decorated floats and receive free candy!

Like many school districts, Westminster Public Schools has a tradition of hosting a Homecoming Parade each Fall. What is unique about WPS is that over the years, all of our schools began to join in the fun, not just Westy. The event has now grown to include all 18 schools with their floats, costumes, themes, music and candy handouts. It is fun for the whole family as the community cheers them along the route to our panel of judges and live announcer. Exact route will be published closer to the date.
