BAKER —   The Baker community brought Gator pride to the school’s homecoming parade this afternoon, a finale for the homecoming festivities.

The parade featured the school's ROTC program, cheerleaders, marching band and football team, among other school clubs and organizations.

Also on the parade route were finalists in this year's Miss Baker contest. Miss Teen Baker, Alexis Baggett, said being a part of the parade was a first for her.

"It's a really great feeling...," she said.

 Alexis rode atop a 1979 Chevy Corvette, driven by Mike Killam, while throwing candy to parade-goers.

Many attendees are regulars to the annual event; several have their favorite spots along the parade route.

"The last few years we have stayed along the main road...," said Jaclyn Ware. She and her son, Nathan Welle, 10, were near the First Baptist Church of Baker awaiting to catch candy.
