Mark your calendars and get our your Giants gear: The Homecoming Parade is returning this year!

Marion High School invites local organizations, businesses, and individuals to join in an exciting tradition: the Giants Homecoming Parade!

If you or your organization would like to participate, please contact Patricia Gibson at the Marion Community Schools District Office ASAP, pgibson@marion.k12.in.us, or call 765-662-2546 x. 121.

The theme for this year’s parade is “Giant Pride Through the Decades”. 

New this year: the "Voices of Giant Homecoming 2019" will be two MHS alums, Richarh Tyson of WMTV Channel 27, Marion, and Chris "C-Mob" Doehla, who will offer friendly and fun commentary throughout the parade from the announcers' table on 26th Street in front of MHS!

The parade will start at the intersection of 26th and Washington streets at 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 13, run west on 26th Street to Carey Street, turn north, and then turn into the parking lot at MHS's Dick Lootens Stadium. (Parade participants should continue on behind the school, and unload by the tennis courts on the other side of the school building.)
