Group after group called out, "Hi, Miss Sarah!" as they marched pass, receiving a friendly wave in return.

As the first marchers finished, many worked their back up Main Street to watch other marching units and business entries that were just starting to roll.

James Small, 12, welcomed a Crestview High junior uniformed as a member of the Junior ROTC battalion who had walked back down the street after his unit disbanded.

"This is my big brother!" James said, proudly putting his arm around Joey Small's neck.

Foster Lux, was to ride in an open convertible with other beauty queens, but first, duty called. She led the Big Red Machine as one its drum majors before running back down Main Street and, to a burst of audience applause, bounding onto the car's tonneau.
