Families enjoy JSU homecoming parade

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - It's Homecoming time, and as usual, Jackson State University has thrown a week-long party!

Saturday morning, thousands lined the streets of Jackson for the Homecoming Parade. Local school bands rocked the crowds. Some marching bands even came from out of state.

This year's Homecoming theme is "JSU: Remember the Times". It celebrates 132 years of excellence.

The Jackson State University Homecoming Parade is always a hit for people of all ages.

 "It's a lot of kids that come out, a lot of families, a chance for the community to get together and support what's going on in Jackson," says spectator Miriam Sabree. 

"I brought my son with me so we can enjoy the day," says George Stewart of Hattiesburg. "We're here to enjoy, go back and have fun."
