September 5, 2021 (Photo Album) - In 90+ degree weather, Center Roughrider fans showed their school spirit in "Purple Up" style on the newly renovated downtown square. With umbrellas in hand to help block the sun's rays, fans cheered on their favorite floats as they transversed by them sending wavys of candy flying through the air to the young Rider fans below.

Floats in the paraded included homecoming court, club sweethearts, football teams and cheerleaders, and returning alumni from the classes of 1970, 1976, and 2011.
Helping to ensure the safety of parade goers were the Center Fire Department and the Center Police Department! Special thanks to the Center Police Department who spent extra time slowing traffic down on the square after the parade exited while young Roughriders rushed to grab the little treasures on the ground left behind.
