The parade is held every two years, according to teacher Cindy Leon, to celebrate America's freedom of voting; it has been part of the election year school calendar for 16 years.

Students vote on several things in school: favorite super hero, yearbook cover, songs, etc. The winners were announced at the celebration.

The Bel Air High School band and the entire Homestead-Wakefield student body marched in the parade, which started at Wakefield and proceeded down the street to the he street to the Homestead building.

At a brief program in the back of the Homestead building, students sang patriotic songs, said the Pledge of Allegiance, sang the "Star-Spangled Banner," "America" and "You're a Grand Old Flag" and listened to a number of guest speakers.
