Sherman homecoming

Posted:

SHERMAN, TX -- There is extra excitement at Sherman high school this week.

That's because it's homecoming.

Earlier this evening the student body and alumni gathered for the annual homecoming parade.

The hour long parade wound from bearcat stadium to the Grayson county courthouse and back.

Tomorrow Sherman will start voting for the homecoming queen and king.

For some parade goers they tell us the best part was watching their kids or grandchildren taking part.

"Oh I think it's great, it's wonderful to see this kind of old tradition continue, in this kind of way, and I think Sherman's really special for making it happen like this, it's really cool," Howard Saunders said.

Homecoming week ends with Sherman playing Naaman Forest out of Garland Friday night.

And of course, we can't forget  the homecoming dance.
