Calling All LHS Alumni and Retired Staff!

We want to make this 100-year Lincoln Homecoming Parade our BIGGEST and BEST EVER!! We want more people walking in the parade and more floats!

To sign up and secure your spot in the parade, please fill out this quick Google Form: https://forms.gle/fHe9ByqHXPixLLb97

  • Class presidents and retired LHS staff, talk with your peers about walking in the parade with a sign and/or a float
  • Not doing anything for your individual graduation year? Join our DECADE walking groups/floats. Each school is creating a sign or float for their assigned decade.
  • Come decorate with us! From 3:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6 until the parade lines up at 5:15, people will be decorating in the Rubick Field parking lot. Want to set up earlier than that? The lot will be open for alumni all day Friday to work on any floats.
  • Please note: all floats/decorations must be school- and district-appropriate and MPSD reserves the right to deny parade entrants or materials. Please, let’s make this event an event that UNITES our community and not focus on something that will put any damper on our legacy 100-year celebration!
