Homecoming 2011, OSU Style

Thursday night saw the Homecoming parade, pep rally, and finally the traditional bonfire, on the Oregon St. campus, and Orange and Black spirit was still strong despite the disappointing season so far.

Taylor Kavanaugh, above, noted Beaver Without Borders, was the 2011 Homecoming Parade Grand Marshall.

The parade of course included floats,
