This year’s Homecoming Parade will embrace our theme of "Viva Milly Vegas" and will feature Vegas-themed floats and displays.
Each organization should consider all things Vegas with a Milledgeville twist...from old Vegas to new. The lights, the music, the architecture, the magic and the entertainment. Floats will be judged on their adherence to the theme, execution of the organizations’ individual concept, craftsmanship, public appeal and overall ingenuity.
The parade will be held Saturday, Feb. 6. Lineup will begin at 10 a.m. on Tattnall Street by The Depot, and the parade will begin promptly at 11 a.m.
