DOWNTOWN ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Thousands of ASU alumni came back to school for homecoming 2009.

Friday's events started with a big parade in downtown Albany, people lined the streets to watch the procession down Pine street this morning.

Bands from as far as Macon County came to help the school celebrate.

This year's theme promotes one dream, one family, and one love. Those who watched the parade told us despite the heat it was great.

Vendors also cashed in.

"I thought it was fantastic, it was good to see a lot of people I haven't seen in a while, and the band the whole thing was good," said Rhonda McClendon, Albany.

"So far it was good we sold out of merchandise we had from Tuesday to Friday we brought these shirts in last night," said Derick Owens, Vendor.

According to ticket sales last year 25,000 people were at the game or on campus.

Homecoming events translated into $4.5 million for Albany and Dougherty County.
