The Hotel Weatherford along the downtown parade route
It was an action-packed Saturday and we enjoyed seeing our alumni at the Weatherford Alumni Breakfast, Homecoming Parade, tailgate party and football game. NAU Football stole the show, coming from behind to defeat Eastern Washington in a surprising finish. Thanks to all of the Lumberjacks who made it such an amazing weekend.
