HOLLEY – Homecoming is this week at Holley Central School and one popular tradition continued on Friday when the classes decorated floats for a parade through the village.

The top photo shows the senior class on High Street for the final stretch of the parade which ended in the parking lot for the old bus garage. The seniors won the parade competition.

The classes had to decorate in the theme of a country as part of culture celebration. The seniors picked an American theme.
