The City of University Park and Town of Highland Park will host a victory parade honoring the 2018 5A State Champion Highland Park football and tennis teams on Saturday, January 12.  This community celebration will be a fun event for the entire family.
 
The parade will begin at 1 p.m. on the west side of the high school on Douglas Avenue and end in Goar Park. Immediately after the parade there will be a special program at the 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, 2016 and 2017 State Championship football teams. The 2018 football and tennis teams will be available to sign autographs after the Goar Park presentation.
 
Thanks to the Dallas Jaguar Club and Sewell Dealerships for providing parade vehicles and to Allie Beth Allman & Associates for sponsoring special commemorative footballs.
 


If the parade must be postponed because of weather, the district will communicate information through its text messaging and email systems, on its Facebook and Twitter feeds, and with a post on the front page of www.hpisd.org. If the parade is postponed, Saturday, Jan. 19 will serve as the backup date.
 
We look forward to seeing the entire community this weekend to honor and celebrate our state champions!
