Yorkville High School welcomes all school and community organizations, as well as businesses to join the school’s annual Homecoming parade set for 5:45 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4.

Political distribution and horses are prohibited. This year, all parade entries must contact William Frye to confirm their place in the parade at wfrye@y115.org or you may call the YHS Academy’s main office at 630-553-4385. 

All parade entries must be submitted before 3 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1. No new entries will be allowed on the day of the parade.  There will be trophies and cash prizes after the parade at the pep rally on the football field.

Alumni interested in judging floats for the parade should contact Frye.

If you are just dropping off participants in the parade, park on the opposite side of Game Farm Road at the football field lot or the YHS Academy lot, then walk across the parking lot.

Lineup for the parade begins at the Yorkville High School bus circle next to the main campus at 4:45 p.m. Do not drive into the bus circle.

Senior citizens wanting to ride on a class float may park in the “reserved section” of the front parking lot. A golf cart will shuttle you to your alumni float (notify staff upon arrival). 

Grandma Rosie’s Sweet Treats, The Pizza Puff Truck, The Cookout on Wheels and Cocos Tacos food trucks will be open in the parking lot in front of Yorkville Grade School.
