Homecoming 1951 shows two baton twirlers performing. A group of men and a few women are then shown leaving Tigert Hall and getting into automobiles. The University of Florida Homecoming Parade follows with floats, marching bands, other groups, and views of the spectators. The final scenes are of some of the Homecoming house and dorm decorations, the Florida Blue Key Banquet, and a few events at Gator Growl. Many of the scenes also appear in production number 10. However, that reel includes footage of the football game and Swimcapades.
