Corvettes and Mustangs with candy-tossing riders made their way through downtown Columbia on Friday afternoon as Rock Bridge and Hickman high schools celebrated homecoming together.

“This is perfect weather for a parade,” said Debbie Sally, of Columbia, while her husband, Jerome, picked up candy off the ground.

Students sitting in the back of trucks and standing on trailers held signs and wore T-shirts displaying their team.
