Celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Alumni Parade!
The Alumni Parade, a much-beloved Reunion tradition, turns 100 this June. Help us celebrate! Originally organized by The Bates Student in 1914, the first Alumni Parade called for “a program of merrymaking by the different classes.” Alumni were happy to oblige, embracing the spirit of the event with festive costumes and clever signage. Today we continue the tradition, adding our own distinctive flair to honor the events and trends that defined our time at Bates.
The 2013 Alumni Parade, held in Merrill Gym, showcases the creativity, energy and spirit of Bates alumni. H. Lincoln Benedict ’09 for Bates College.
