VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

It's homecoming week for Valdosta City Schools, and Friday afternoon Wildcats showed off their spirit.

Hundreds of students and teachers participated in a parade. Floats were decked out in this year's homecoming theme, super heroes.

The band played, football players and cheerleaders chanted, and the homecoming queen nominees waved to the crowd.

"My favorite part about it is when they throw the goodies. As in candy, necklaces, mostly any kind of goodie," said 10-year-old Casey Swift.

"I love it. I'm always going to be a Wildcat so I'm always going to come," said Wildcat graduate, Treana Knighton.

Friday night, the Wildcats will take on the Newton Rams, and the homecoming queen will be crowned at halftime.
