The annual Texas A&M University-Kingsville (TAMUK) Homecoming Parade took place at historic downtown Kingsville on Oct. 10 amid an autumn sunset.The Homecoming parade consisted of floats from various clubs, student activities, fraternities and sororities.

Represented at the parade were Campus Activities Board, Javelina Athletics, the Javelina Cheerleaders, Miss TAMUK Jo-Ana Medrano, Sigma Lambda Beta fraternity, Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority, The Press Club, Porky’s Pack, Kappa Delta Chi, the Catholic Student Organization, Pep Talk, the 2012 Homecoming King and Queen, and the top five Homecoming King and Queen candidates.

Porky peddled around on a unicycle while members of Pep Talk and the Press Club handed out candy to kids attending the parade.

Miss TAMUK’s float ended up winning Best Float, winning $100 on behalf of Student Activites.

“There were so many traditional activities throughout homecoming week that both students and alumni could enjoy,” Medrano said. “My personal favorite was the tailgate because it was great seeing the community come out and support out team while enjoying some good music, food and company.”
