Exuberant kids and athletes hopped on floats, boats and truck flatbeds as they waved, tossed candy and celebrated homecoming week with a parade on Sept. 15. The procession on the Old Highway began at Islamorada Dry Cleaners, rolling up to the school where high school floats decorated to the decades stopped in front of a tent to perform in front of administrators. Families and friends situated alongside the road looked on as the floats, convertibles with the homecoming court and Miss Coral Shores passed by with smiles and waves. The parade also welcomed other Upper Keys schools, including the Plantation Key School and Key Largo School bands, Treasure Village Montessori and Ocean Studies Charter School. Young athletes from Islanders Soccer and Key Largo football, as well as dancers from On Your Toes participated in the parade.
