North Olmsted celebrates soggy Homecoming

The 2021 Homecoming Festival was smaller than usual with no rides (blame COVID) and rain threatened to spoil the day at the end of the annual parade. But large knots of people lined the streets around North Olmsted High School to watch the school band, football team and various community groups march and ride by in the procession to the festival grounds at North Olmsted Park, where food trucks and various booths awaited. The Eagles Marching Band stood ready to be one of the highlights of the parade, later making their way down Dover Center Road toward Lorain Road. The Shriner Krazy Kops drew laughs threatening to fine for littering parade participants throwing candy. They warned any unaccompanied children would be taken away and sold to the circus.
