Town shows old school spirit with game-themed homecoming parade

Homecoming parades are as American as apple pie and diabetes type 2. But this year’s homecoming parade in St. Charles, Illinois had a unique videogame theme that we think anyone can relate to. Local residents came out in droves to support the East High School Saints at the special event. Students and faculty went to town with the theme, creating tons of game-themed floats, banners, and decorations for the event. Local vendors joined the fun too, decorating windows with iconic game characters.

It looks like good times were had by all. Check out the highlights below.

Thanks for the tip Iymanzaar.

    It would be more impressive if anyone in that town knew that Mario, Sonic, and Tetris weren't the only games ever made.
