ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany State has reached the end of its homecoming festivities. The weekend will be a big finale to the week.
"I am very excited to be in the parade," said Lindsay Burnett.
Homecoming weekend started off with large crowds enjoying the year's parade.
All high school marching bands from Albany and surrounding areas participated in the the parade. For some, it marked the beginning of parade season.
"It gives our new girls a chance to get rid of their jitter bugs.
And getting use to performing in front of big crowds you know getting their nervousness out," said Burnett.
As tradition goes after the parade, there was of course tailgating.
Many came out early to the stadium to support the Rams.
Sheri Norwood had been traveling to Albany from Atlanta in the past two years for homecoming to support her daughter who is a student at ASU.
"And when she enrolled her I was excited," said Norwood. "And then when homecoming came up I was like yes, I will be taking part in this until she graduates."
She said the best part of the day was the Rams coming together.
The festivities officially end Saturday night at the Civic Center.
