For the first time in 10 years, Westminster College will have a homecoming parade on Oct. 17 in Fulton.

Emily Grand, a Westminster junior in charge of special events for the Campus Activity Board, said Westminster students decided to revive the homecoming parade instead of creating banners that were placed on the outside of fraternity houses during homecoming.

“We are having a superhero theme for floats entered in this year’s parade. We would like the floats to look like a superhero this year,” Grand said.
