People throughout the Ludowici and Long County came out to show support for the 2007 Long County High School homecoming parade and pep rally.
Parade participants began lining up behind the LCHS at 5 p.m. and then the fun an hour later. The parade left the high school and traveled to Smiley Elementary School.
The theme for this year’s Homecoming Parade was “Unforgettable” and the co-grand marshals were Joe and Miriam Murray, who rode in a 1965 Mustang convertible.
Terri Martin, who was at the parade to watch her son, Blue Tide wide receiver Stevie Harrison, said, “This year’s parade was really great. There was a lot of good floats and we had a real good time.”
Third grader Diamond Davis said, “This was the best parade ever. My favorite part was the candy they threw.”
The parade participate who won runner-up for best float was the Long County High School Science Club, while the winner of the competition was the Recreation Department’s 11 and 12-year-old Bulldog football team.
Once all the floats reached Veterans Field, there was a Blue Tide community pep rally where the bleachers filled up.  
The Blue Tide football team and the cheerleaders gathered on the field, while around the track a convoy of sharp automobiles lined up with the grand marshals’ vehicle, last year’s homecoming queen, Alex Chambliss, and the young ladies selected for the 2007 homecoming court.
The homecoming celebration wrapped up Friday when the Blue Tide football team took on the Savannah Christian Red Raiders.
