Florida State University Homecoming

Florida State Seminole fans turned out in large numbers Saturday to watch their team duke it out. Seminole fans flooded the capital city Saturday for the Florida State homecoming game.

For many it's all about the sport, but for others like Carolyn Rayboun it's a time to reminisce on the good ‘ole days.

"This is homecoming. I'm a Tallahassee native and a Florida State grad and a marching chief member for four years in the 70s and it's just a wonderful day to reconnect with friends, have a good time and enjoy the Seminoles,” shared Rayboun.

While many fans are right here in the capital city, some travel the yard to support their favorite team.

"Every year, every home game, we're here to support the team,” said Ryan Keeling from Jacksonville, Florida.

And every year vendors return to the capital city loaded with Florida State fan wear. Some vendors say homecoming games equal more fans, more energy and more money.

FSU vendor John Smith said, "We handle Florida State games predominately throughout the whole season.”

It’s a season football fans are going to make sure they don't miss.

"We're going to go the game; we're going to have a good time and it’s going to be big fun," added Keeling.

And fun is exactly why hundreds of others turned out in large numbers to show their Seminole spirit. Police say Saturday’s traffic was light compared to other FSU home games.
