Passing the judges’ stand: The University’s float celebrated Webster University’s centennial year.

Webster University’s participation in Independence Day celebrations included one of the largest festivals in the St. Louis region, Webster Groves Community Days. The University was again a gold sponsor of the annual festival, held July 2-4. A major part of the event is the annual Community Days parade through Webster Groves held on Saturday, July 4.

Many thanks to the Webster University staff, faculty, students, alumni and friends who made the event a success!

Staging for the parade began in front of Webster’s home campus. A long line of floats took parade-goers through the heart of Webster Groves, the suburban St. Louis community where the University was founded in 1915.

To mark this historic year, the University’s blue and gold float had a centennial theme, “100 Years and Counting.” Students, staff, faculty and alumni walked the 2-mile route alongside the float, handing out Webster-logo hand fans and medallion beads to parade-goers.
