The University of Toledo Marching Band leads off the line of parade participants during the 2006 Edward C. Schmakel Homecoming Parade, which kicked off at the main entrance on Bancroft Street and wound through the neighboring Old Orchard area.
The parade was sponsored by the Blue Key National Honor Fraternity and was the university's first since its merger with the former Medical University of Ohio this summer.
The theme for this year's homecoming was 'Building the New UT.'
Madison Andra, 5, left, friend Charlie Cook, 7, center, and Adrianne Cook, 9, delight over the candy they collected during the parade.
