Floral Park Memorial High School's Homecoming Parade
Floral Park Memorial High School held its annual Homecoming Parade Saturday, Oct. 13. The event, originally scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 22, spread school spirit throughout the village as cheerleaders, patriotic floats, the school band, students, Mayor Ann Corbett, Floral Park Memorial High School Principal Gloria O'Connor, Floral Park-Bellerose school board members and others took to the pavement to spread some much-needed cheer. Mayor Corbett said although the parade stepped off a little later than planned and the route was a little shorter than usual, teen spirit was at its expected peak. "Along the route, a few trees decorated with white toilet paper streamers reminded me of my own high school days, the football games and the cheers," she said. "Eventually, the band played America and a sense of patriotism prevailed until the parade ended. It was worth the blister on my toe."
