Homecoming isn't just for Neligh-Oakdale students - it's for the whole community. At least, that's the hope of Blackburn Manufacturing.
Krista Schindler, BMC marketing director, said her company is planning to have a float in Friday's parade and is hoping other businesses will follow suit.
"We really want to encourage other businesses to celebrate homecoming and pull the community together to support the school, students and each other," Schindler said. "The homecoming parade is a great opportunity for businesses to show their support and show community spirit as well as school spirit."
The parade lineup will begin at 12:30 p.m. outside of the school with the parade starting at 1 p.m. The theme for the parade this year is "Movies."
Schindler said several businesses have already agreed to have a float in the parade, and she's excited to see how many will participate.
The Antelope County News will also participate in the parade as well as have staff photographing and recording it for highlight video.
