At 5:30 SHARP, the Homecoming 2014 Parade begins in Old Bellevue at the corner of Main and 100th. The parade lasts all of 10 minutes, so if you are late, you will miss it, don’t be late! Let’s fill the street with students, staff, parents and alumni! Dress in your blue and gold, this is a great community event for all.
