Our kids go to a K-12 school in the Hill Country, TX. The school is over 100 years old but has never had a Homecoming event. Without a football team, the school focuses on the stellar basketball program to celebrate "athledemics" at the school. It made perfect sense to have a parade through the small town to welcome all the visitors for the inaugural homecoming.
The girls were invited to be a part of the parade and each chose to represent in a different way. Our baby dressed up as a butterfly fairy princess in her Disney garb and leftover Halloween props.
The oldest opted to be a bike rider with all the cool kids and was a little frustrated at the slow pace of parades. She eventually decided next year, she was hijacking a float or pickup truck.
The town is tiny. We had the Longest parade for a 500 person town I could have imagined. There must have been at least 20 floats or riding slots.

It was some good ol' small town fun. Happy Homecoming!
