The day full of events began with people lining the historical streets of east Jackson to catch a glimpse of the annual parade.

Kids were tossed candy from those participating in the parade and alumni gathered to share memories from the college. Organizers said the parade drew a larger crowd and more participation than they have seen in recent years. They attribute the success to the beautiful weather and the hard work the alumni association. Alumni from all across the nation returned to Jackson for the weekend celebration.
