“Homecoming Parade”

Homecoming Parade

A Night of Hawkeye Spirit, Iowa City, Iowa

I wanted to do an Iowa painting in honor of my oldest daughter’s graduation from high school, and to celebrate my becoming a ‘University of Iowa Mom.’ Homecoming, with all the festivities, is one of the best things about Iowa’s beautiful fall season. Nothing compares to the crisp fall air, the UI Marching and Alumni Bands, floats and fun, the crowds, fireworks, and maybe a full moon too. With the excitement of Iowa football at Kinnick Stadium, Iowa City is electrified at Homecoming!

In this painting: Iowa Book and Supply, The Airliner, Red’s World, Hand’s Jewelry, Iowa State Bank, Austin Burke Clothiers, Enzler’s, Girl Scouts, Bud Louis in his antique fire engine, Herky the Hawk bearing the Tiger Hawk flag, cheerleaders, poms, drum major, dogs, children and their families, a Cambus sign, Iowa City West High fans, City High fans.  Hayden Fry is “stuffed in effigy”, with straw, on the cheerleaders’ float.  This year the big City vs. West game falls on Homecoming Parade night!
