Champions Parade - Saturday, January 13
January 5, 2018
The City of University Park and Town of Highland Park will host a victory parade to honor the 2017 back-to-back State Champion Highland Park football and tennis teams. Like last year, this community celebration will be a fun event for the entire family.
The parade will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 13 on the west side of the high school on Douglas Ave., and end at Goar Park. Both teams will be celebrated with a special program following the parade at the Goar Park Gazebo.
The parade will feature the football and tennis players and coaches, the award-winning Highlander Band, the Highland Belles, cheerleaders and Scotsmen, the Sparkling Scots, and members of the 1945, 1957, 2005 and 2016 State Championship football teams. The 2017 football and tennis teams will be available to sign autographs after the Goar Park presentation.
Thanks to Sewell Dealerships for providing the parade vehicles and to Allie Beth Allman & Associates for sponsoring special commemorative footballs.
If the parade has to be cancelled because of bad weather, January 20 is the make-up date.
