Homecoming Parade Info

The Golden Eagle Band will proudly march down Belt Line to perform in one of Richardson High School’s grandest traditions, the Homecoming Parade. This event occurs at the end of the school day on Homecoming Friday. Students will wear “Summer Uniform” (Band Polo, black shorts, black belt, black socks, marching shoes).

All students are released early on Friday to attend the Homecoming Parade. Band members will report to the Band Hall directly after school is released. We will quickly change into summer uniform and bus down to Heights Elementary in shifts. The parade begins at 4:00pm and runs down Belt Line Rd. from Heights Elementary back to RHS.

Directly following the parade, we’ll head to the Eagles Nest for dinner. Note that the turn around for this week’s game is REALLY quick due to the fact that we’re performing at Pre-Game so if you don’t have a Football Meal Plan, you’ll probably want to bring your food to school that morning as you likely won’t have time to go out and get something.

Lastly, the way that the organizers handle the “entry fee” for the Homecoming Parade is fantastic! Rather than collecting money for the entry fee, each band member is expected to donate one pack of underwear, which will be collected and donated to the Clothes Closet, a local charity serving the needs of the area.

There is a collection area in the front of the band hall for each student to turn in his/her package of underwear. The package should be marked with the student’s name so that we can account for who has already turned in their contribution. This is a great charity and I expect the band to be the single greatest contributor!
