This just in: SMU Homecoming voted “best day of the year” by D Magazine … OK, not really. But it is in my opinion. This year’s parade starts at 11 a.m. on Saturday.
Academy Award winner and alumnus William Joyce will serve as grand marshal and this year’s theme is books that have become blockbusters. How great is that? Joyce has written and illustrated more than 50 children’s books, plus he’s had a long career in animated film and TV, so the theme is something he knows a little bit about.
The parade starts on Hillcrest Road at University Boulevard and goes south until looping around Highland Park United Methodist Church and back up Bishop Boulevard (the same route every year).
In the meantime, to help you reach the proper level of excitement, I’m just going to leave this here. Class of 2011!
