Two fire engines drove down Foothill Boulevard Friday carrying an unusual group of passengers — La Cañada High School's football team and cheerleaders. It was all part of the homecoming parade before the school's big game and school dance.
"Homecoming is a celebratory event, the kids are very excited about it," said Joanne Davidson, LCHS assistant principal. "We have a lot of people come back for the football game and it's just a great time for our school."
The festivities kicked off early Friday morning as LCHS students packed the school's football stadium at 9:30 a.m. for a pep rally.
"They were able to do something a little different," Davidson said. "Having the pep rally outside was very traditional, but modern at the same time."
Everyone rushed over to Memorial Park once school let out, taking their school spirit with them. Pickup trucks morphed into makeshift parade floats to lead the procession of cars from Memorial Park down Foothill Boulevard.
