TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The University of Arizona celebrated its 99th homecoming Saturday with two special guests as grand marshals.

Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband former astronaut Mark Kelly rode the very first float in the parade.

They waved and smiled to the crowd, and led the way for other alumni and floats to follow.
