ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The weekend's homecoming festivities kicked off with the annual homecoming parade downtown. There was a big turnout for the parade.

People lined the route along Pine Avenue as the parade marched down the street.

Several school bands and community organizations marched before the ASU band and homecoming court.

This year's homecoming theme was "We're All In", bringing together the people of Albany who help support ASU.

For Albany natives like Debra Washington, it was a chance to come back home and celebrate.

"I live in Atlanta now. But I'm from Albany. I always come home and it's fun and the comradery between everybody is awesome," said Washington.

Watching the parade is a tradition for many families from the area.

The parade started at 9 a.m. and lasted for about two hours.
