Homecoming Floats Through The Years (Part II of II)

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photos are Part II of II taken of Homecoming Floats taken over the course of three decades. It shows how the ingenuity and creativity of these floats evolved through the years.

By the late 1960’s, these displays started to get some size to them as shown in the photo above from the 1967 season. It seemed there was a trend during this era to see who could make the largest and most colorful display.

The last photo shows a clever design with two Tigers pulling on a Maryland terrapin. If you look closely, you can notice that the float spans the road in front of Tillman Hall.
