Images From Ferris State University's Entry In The Cherry Festival Parade

Ferris State University was well represented in Traverse City as representatives engaged local alumni and friends as a participant in the 2010 DTE Energy Cherry Royale Parade on on July 10 as part of the 84th National Cherry Festival.

Ferris' participation, previewed in a News Services story, met with rave reviews during one of the oldest and most prestigious parades around.

(Above) The fabulous Key West Permafrost Blues Band performed the Ferris Fight Song, Brown-eyed Girl and House is a Rockin' during the parade - and the band is mostly composed of Ferris faculty/staff/alums - how cool is that?!
