Parade Information

The Homecoming Parade will be Friday, September 24, 2021 at 2 pm throughout Metamora!  Check out the parade route to help you find your best viewing location!

The theme for this year’s Homecoming is “Hollywood – Lights! Camera! Homecoming!”.  We will begin line up at 1:00 PM in the parking lot near the baseball/softball complex off Wiedman Road. The parade line-up map will be posted as soon as possible, to help groups and organizations find their “ready spot”. The line-up map document (2021 Parade Line-Up) will provide your group’s parade participation number; then match it to the parade line-up map to locate your group’s parade “ready spot”.
