(KCEN) -- It's one of the oldest parade's in the country.
Today over 5,000 Baylor supporters showed-up for their homecoming parade.
With over 5,000 people on 5th Street for today's parade, finding a place to sit wasn't easy.
So freshman Ryan Clements got creative.
"Past experiences we knew it was hard to see, we kind of like hammocking so we thought why not hammock all night," he says.
Waiting all night for the parade is nothing compared to how long it takes to get ready for it.
As soon as the last float reaches the finish line, next years planning begins.
Pauline Minnaar of the Baylor Chamber of Commerce says, "University High, their marching band is going to be in the parade today. This is the first time we've had a marching band other than the Golden Wave."
For alumni this was more than just a parade.
"You haven't seen someone in a long time, and you pick up old relationships and it's just a wonderful feeling," says Baylor class of 1961 alum Jack Ward.
Of course everybody loves a parade but nobody loves them like Baylor, they held this parade since 1909 and is one of the longest running parades in history.
Kay Walker, a sophomore at Baylor says, "This is the biggest and longest parade in the whole nation and to be a part of that is something I cannot even describe. I love Baylor."
Although Ryan is only a freshman, he's glad to know that his Baylor family will stay through the night for sake of tradition.
"To get a good group of friends to come out here with you. It makes it a lot better than to do it by yourself."
Baylor's homecoming game against the Kansas Jay Hawks is now underway at Floyd Casey stadium.
