Let by the Wolf Pack marching band, the classes of 2011 through 2015 showed their spirit through Disney-themed floats and cheers along the route of the parade.
While the Lil Sprout, Bean Princess and Bean Queen waved from the back of convertibles, West cheerleaders tossed candy to the children in the crowd and the homecoming princes, princesses — not to mention the king and queen, Adrian DelaCruz and Melissa Villacarte — waved to the onlookers.
Also included in the festivities were several school clubs as well as the Monte Vista Middle School band.
The parade is prelude to the homecoming football games later today, with the sophomores kicking off at 5 p.m. and varsity starting at 7:15, both against the defending Tri-City Athletic League champs St. Mary’s Rams.
The week’s festivities end with a dance Saturday night at the West High gymnasium.
