Reunion is a time to reunite on campus with classmates and friends — but also for a Bates community spanning 65 years to gather and celebrate.

On Friday evening, alumni and their families and friends, from the Class of 1948 through the Class of 2013, ooh’ed and ahh’ed at spectacular fireworks over Lake Andrews.

The following morning, after a 5k race and mimosas, everyone lined up on the Historic Quad for a Reunion centerpiece: the Alumni Parade. Classes cheered each other on as they marched or rode.
