Oregon St. hasn't had a home game in a month, and just 1 since Sept.7, so "Homecoming" this week really is one.

Here's a look at tonight's parade and rally.

Some rides don't involve horsebacks.

And it wouldn't be a parade without the "Spirit and Sound of Oregon St."

The parade passes by Reser, where Beaver Nation will reconvene in 2 nights.

This year, the parade ended at the new sight of the rally and bonfire, beyond the outfield at the softball stadium.
