1960 homecoming parade: Fairy tale dresses and cars

Led by the marching band, cheerleaders and others in backs of trucks, long stretches of convertibles with homecoming royalty wind their way through Main Street during the 1960 Cherokee High School homecoming parade. In this home movie shared by the Gray family, we get a look into fashion and cars of the time, as well as glimpses of the architecture and businesses along Main Street and how they’ve changed (or not).

The video originated from 8mm film that was shot by Richard Gray’s family. Gray had kept the film for decades and had transferred it over to DVD in the past few years. It was originally shared with The Canton Times.
