The Worthington Bicentennial Homecoming Celebration brought Worthington's history to life through an official Homecoming Parade on Saturday, July 5, 2003. The Homecoming Parade celebrated the previous 200 years that have shaped the community of Worthington, beginning with its founding in 1803. The Bicentennial Wagon Train, a collaborative project of Worthington and State of Ohio's Bicentennial Commission, led the Homecoming parade through Worthington. Community organizations, neighborhoods, institutions and corporations participated with parade floats that highlighted historic moments in the community. This program describes each of the 57 parade entries. A start time of 10:03 a.m. was chosen for the parade in recognition of Worthington's founders' arrival date to their new home in the Ohio wilderness (October 1803, or 10-03). Following the parade, the Wagon Train units were on display at the July 5th homecoming celebration at the front lawn of Thomas Worthington High School before continuing their trek across the State of Ohio.

It covers the topics centennial celebrations, parades, programs and wagon trains.
