Homecoming Parade 2019

Alabaster City Schools will host our Homecoming Celebration on Wednesday, September 18, 2019! 

The Celebration will begin with the annual Homecoming Parade. The parade will begin at 6:00 pm. The Parade will follow a new route this year! It will travel around Thompson High School, beginning near the back parking lot, and will travel around Warrior Parkway to the new stadium. The floats will travel down the center of the road so please use both sides of the road for viewing. The night will continue with a Community Pep Rally at the stadium starting around 7 pm and end with a firework finale. 

The theme of the parade is “Honoring the Past, Preparing for the Future”!

The Grand Marshall is Ms. Peggy Kent.

Parking will be available around the THS campus. In addition, overflow parking will be available at the TMS campus located on Warrior Drive. A shuttle will run continuously starting at 5:15 until 5:45 for overflow parking. The pick-up and drop-off will be at the TMS side parking lot beside gym entrance/flagpole and THS campus at the fountain. The shuttle will begin running again for return to overflow parking after the parade ends and will end 30 minutes after the fireworks.

The back entrance of the THS campus will only be used for float traffic and participant drop off.  It is not available for public use and will be one way only. The entrance to the campus will be closed at 5:55 pm to allow for the parade to begin. If you are not on campus by 5:55 pm, you will not be able to enter until the parade route ends.


Float registration information can be found at  or by visiting and selecting Thompson High School under select a school.
