Homecoming Parades Will Fill Streets This Weekend

Marching bands, floats and homecoming courts will flood the streets of Reston and Herndon this weekend. South Lakes High School and Herndon High School are both celebrating their annual homecoming weekends.

The festivities will kick off in Reston at 5 p.m. Friday, when a parade will begin near the Hunters Woods Plaza Safeway. The procession will move north on Colts Neck Road and head east on South Lakes Drive to South Lakes High.

The Seahawks will play Thomas Jefferson High School starting at 7:30 p.m. Students will attend the homecoming dance in the school gym Saturday night.

Herndon High School’s carnival-themed parade is set to kick off at 9:30 a.m. Saturday in downtown Herndon. Participants will begin to march on Sterling Road, head east onto Elden Street, turn left onto Lynn Street and end on Center Street.

“Neighbors, families and friends are invited to line Elden Street and cheer on our home team and the whole community,” the town website reads.

Floats will be judged based on “creativity and theme interpretation,” the site says.

The Hornets will play the Edison Eagles at 1:30 p.m., and then students will attend a dance that night.
