Russells Point Police and Indian Lake Schools invite families, neighbors and all Indian Lake Laker fans and alumni to line Main Street for the 13th annual homecoming parade.
This spirit-filled tradition will take place in downtown Russells Point on Thursday, Sept. 30, beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The parade will feature dozens of floats showcasing Indian Lake student athletes, band members, local law enforcement, student organizations, staff and the 2021 Homecoming Queen and court. Groups will hand out candy and other small prizes.
The theme for this year’s Homecoming event is “Getting Back to Work! Work Over the Hillclimbers!” Each high school class will decorate their float to recognize essential workers and other occupations. In addition, establishments along the parade route are encouraged to decorate their exteriors. The ILHS Student Council will present an award for the Business with the Best Spirit.
After the parade, McDonald’s of Indian Lake will host a Pep Rally in the overflow parking lot next to the restaurant to get the students, players, parents and fans excited about the game against Urbana Friday night at the ILHS Stadium.
Cheerleaders will introduce the coaches, football players and the Homecoming Court.
Prior to the parade, Russells Point Police will close the west end of Main Street at 5 p.m.
Floats should approach the parade route from Township Road 239 at Midway. Students who are participating in the parade may be dropped off at the bike path pull-off at T.R. 239 or Paradise Island across from Indian Head Roadhouse.
