Warren County High School is preparing for its homecoming celebration in September. The parade date and route have been set.

McMinnville’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen unanimously approved a written request from WCHS principal Clark George for the parade details.

“We are seeking approval for Warren County High School’s 2019 Homecoming Parade route on Friday, Sept. 27,” he said. “We are requesting closing of West Colville Street from 12:15 p.m. until the end of the parade. Lineup will begin at 12:30 p.m.”

At 1:30 p.m., the parade will begin at Tire Mart and run the length of Main Street. It will end at the Farmers Market.

“I will be working closely with Chief Bryan Denton, Major Mike Lane, and the McMinnville Police Department on the details of the parade once this proposed route has been approved,” said George. 

Mayor Ben Newman, Vice Mayor Ryle Chastain and Aldermen Steve Harvey, Mike Neal, Everett Brock, Rachel Kirby and Kate Alsbrook approved the request. 

The parade is a mainstay of homecoming activities. Along with allowing Pioneer fans their chance to urge the team to victory, it provides classes a chance to have good-spirited fun by constructing floats to be judged during the procession.
