UF Homecoming Weekend

This past weekend was one for the books as my family and I celebrated UF’s homecoming! Our weekend was packed with Gator football, family dinners and priceless memories!

Kev and I started off homecoming with the homecoming festival and parade. This was the first time that there was a festival, and we really enjoyed it. There were different vendors and sponsors at the festival with freebies. The highlight was running into our  sweet friends Hannah and Allison, pictured below.

Not only was there fun carnival-like activities at the festival, but there was also orange and blue kettle popcorn! The kettle popcorn smelled absolutely delicious, but the line was very long, (and I may have been slightly impatient) so we left empty-handed.

After the carnival, we headed over to grab seats in front of the stadium to watch the homecoming parade. I have always enjoyed watching the parade; ever since my freshman year when I was able to participate in it myself. I will never forget the feeling of riding down University Avenue in the back of a flat-bed trailer spreading the Gator spirit. This year Kev and I joined our friends, Paulette and Chris, to watch.

Next up, the UF Football game vs. Vandy! I always enjoy watching a football game, whether it’s good or ugly. This game was especially fun because I got to watch some of my friends take the field as part of the homecoming court. And even though they couldn’t hear me from the stands, that didn’t stop me from cheering.

I’m already looking forward to next year’s homecoming weekend!
