After considering options on restoring an annual town tradition, district officials decided that Prosper will be hosting their annual homecoming parade on Sept. 22. Last year they cancelled the event due to COVID 19. The parade will begin at 6 p.m. at Reynolds Middle School, and it will end at Prosper High School. Roads will close at 5 p.m.

The parade will proceed down Broadway, turning right on Coleman toward Prosper High School.

Only student/district and Town of Prosper floats will be allowed to participate in the Homecoming parade this year. The homecoming dance, football game, and homecoming pep rally will also occur the same week as the parade.
