Last week, Rams from across the country descended on the city as Winston-Salem State University celebrated its Homecoming. 

Headlined by events such as the Musical Extravaganza, Miss and Mister WSSU Coronation, wreath laying ceremony, the Red and Black Affair, and of course, the Homecoming football game at Bowman Gray Stadium, this year’s theme was Forever Red, celebrating the legacy and loyalty of WSSU. 

That loyalty was on full display on Saturday, Oct. 20. Despite an 80 percent chance of rain and a sky filled with rain clouds, hundreds of Ram faithful lined the streets of downtown Winston-Salem and Martin Luther King Drive on Saturday morning for the annual Homecoming Parade. 

For more than an hour, alumni, current students, educators, and locals braved rain showers for the chance to see the march of the Red Sea of Sound and countless other bands, dance troupes, and other organizations do their thing. 

The Chronicle was on hand to capture the event in photos. Here are just a few of the moments we were able to capture.
