Saturday’s 35th annual Avon Lake Homecoming Parade lived up to its long-standing tradition as one of the best community events around.
Almost every civic group in town enters a float or takes part in the parade in some fun and spirited way.
Avon Lake’s 35th annual Homecoming was the highlight last Saturday morning as community groups stepped off in fine style from Bleser Park at 10:30 a.m. under summery skies.
Those who aren’t in the parade line the parade route, taking pictures, waving at their kids or scooping up candy tossed by the participants.
The parade was one part of a series of homecoming events that makes this a very special weekend in Avon Lake each fall.
