L.C.T.S. Homecoming Parade To Come Up Main St. For First Time
For the first time, the Lake County Training School will be allowed to extend their annual homecoming day parade route down Main Street, City Commissioners decided Monday night, setting a precedent in Leesburg.
School principal P. E. Williams said that they would like more people to see the parade by allowing it to come at least two blocks past Canal Street, their limit in past years.
Commissioner Tim Knowles inquired how the school became limited, and was told by City Manager Keener Mizell that “It has been suggested they not come up Main Street.”
“They’ll have to cut it short if they want to stay on Main Street, because it ties up traffic,” Police Chief Bill Fisher said.
Knowles asked if the only objection to the parade was the traffic difficulty and Fisher replied, “Yes.”
