CLEVELAND - Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson was the Grand Marshal for Cleveland State University's Homecoming Parade.
This is the first Homecoming Parade held since 1966. It started at East 24th and Prospect right under the arch of Euclid Commons.
The parade was well represented by the North Olmsted High School marching band, the men's and women's basketball teams, Viking mascots, and the rocket ship from Euclid Beach. There were 29 floats and vehicles.
There was a three panel judge team voting for the best float. The winner receives $500 and the "Viking Cup."
The parade ended at the Wolstein Center where a tailgate party was held.
At 6:30p.m., CSU's basketball Viking Madness kicked off. The teams were introduced, then held a shoot around for the thousands in attendance.
