"Minerland," the theme for this year's homecoming, brought in Miners and Miner fans big and small for this year's parade.

Orange and blue filled the streets of Oregon and Glory Road due to construction on campus as parade watchers gathered to watch the floats pass by.

But this year's parade included a new twist to the beloved tradition.
