Hudson High School helds 2013 homecoming parade on a beautiful autumn afternoon, Wednesday, Sept. 25. The sun was shining and the temperature  was around 80 degrees.

Football players rode on fire trucks, the Marching Raiders band participated in full uniform, and the Raidaires dance team and the high school cheer and stunt team performed, and Principal Peggy Shoemaker and Dean of Students Dana Krahhenbuhl rode on the back of an ATV handing out candy. Several other high school clubs and the fifth- and sixth-grade Booster football players also walked or rode in the parade.

Here are some scene from the event.

The homecoming queen will be crowned at 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27, at Newton Field, prior to the Raiders' football game with Eau Claire Memorial.
