Staff Shorts are tidbit writings by our editorial board. They’re mostly meant to be light-hearted, but we sometimes touch on more serious, important topics. They aim to express the many student voices of the University.

Not to rain on any parades, but Morgantown has too many parades.

Why are there individual Homecoming parades for Morgantown High School, University High School and WVU?

The MHS Homecoming parade is Thursday. The University High School one was last Thursday. The WVU one was on Oct. 4.

High school groups are already involved in the WVU parade anyway. So having one collective one that holds up traffic and and holds up parking for only one night is sensical and efficient.

This would make for a great parade and a great amount of candy for those attending.
