Today’s dreary skies and misty rainfall didn’t dampen the spirits of Riverhead Blue Waves fans who turned out for the 2016 homecoming parade today.

The parade stepped off at 12:30 this afternoon on East Avenue and marched up Main Street to Osborn Avenue and McKillop Memorial Field, where the Blue Waves took on the Copiague Eagles. (Check back later for results and game photos, which will be posted after the game.)

This year’s theme was old-time video games:

1st place: Senior Class of 2017- Mario Bros.
2nd place: Freshman Class of 2020: TetrisJuniors
3rd place (tie):
Junior Class of 2018: Pac-Man and Sophomore Class of 2019: Donkey Kong
