Lakewood brings back parade tradition

Photos by Charles Prince Photos by Charles Prince HEBRON - Excitement was in the air last Thursday night. The first Lakewood Homecoming Parade in years stretched all the way from Evans Park to the Ohio 79 overpass at East Main Street.

Seventy-five units answered the call from the Hebron Business Association who organized the parade, bonfire and pep rally. President Beth Walters, Vice President Glenna Jones and Treasurer Sharon Scheidegger were nearly overwhelmed by the response.

Hundreds of students and residents followed the parade to Evans Park for the pep rally and bonfire. The Marching Lancers won the Mayor's Spirit Award trophy donated by Pat Miller of HER Real Living and Steve McDonald of Nationwide Insurance.
