All photos by Jamie Nygaard
It's the best small-town high school homecoming parades in northwest Ohio. And, for a quirky reason it seems to attract lots of youth dresses as pirates.

Jamie Nygaard captured several views of last Friday's homecoming parade. She then took photos of the homecoming court in the pre-game ceremony at Harmon Field.

Following up on the pirate theme, Bluffton residents' door-bells will ring later this month and many of the same pirates will appear with a bag in hand asking for candy. Just you wait.
