"It's also a good was to show off your community to those people who have been away for a number of years. Show the progress you've done."
Hotel rooms in the community have been sold out for weeks for homecoming.
The grads gathered and rode through the streets in the annual homecoming parade before heading off to the games between Vincennes Lincoln and Casey-Westfield.
