While the Vidor Highschool Mighty Pirate Marching Band did not lead Vidor High School Homecoming Parade this year, it did provide thrilling performances of popular music as it marched down Main Street last week on Friday.

It was a perfect day for a parade with perfect temperature, a perfect breeze and a wonderful audience with whom to share the spectacle. Some parade watchers made their ways to their perfect parade watching spot around noon while others had arrived early in the day or the day before to stake their claims to lawns or parking spaces on Main Street. Everywhere you looked many parade spectators were sporting Homecoming corsages and boutonnières.

There were a lot of blankets spread on the ground while others lounged in folding chairs.

When the parade started, sirens from police vehicles marked the beginning of the parade and the first marching band was from the Vidor Junior High School. There were all kinds of floats, all kinds of cars and even a huge cement mixer truck from “Knife River”.

The parade theme “Big Buck Rocks the Ages” was very much evident on floats and vehicles in the parade. There was even a live DJ and air guitars, literally.

Mary Barrela was seated on a blanket with nephews and declared that she always comes to watch the Vidor High School Homecoming Parade, rain or shine, hot or cold.
