Carlo Tobia is a fan of Steve Harvey and listens to the comedian's morning show every day.

So, it only made sense that he wore a black suit and faux black moustache for Wantagh High School's homecoming parade on Saturday. Tobia and his fellow freshman class built huge red "X's" with a large sign reading "Survey Says" for their "Family Feud" float.

"He is the funniest. He cracks me up every time. I love Steve Harvey," the 14-year-old freshman said of Harvey, who hosts "Feud" while keeping up with his radio and TV talk show gigs.

Each Wantagh class displayed a different game show on their floats. The sophomores chose "The Price Is Right"; the juniors took a little creative license with "Are You Smarter than an 11th Grader?" and the seniors went with "Wheel of Fortune."

"It's a spirit celebration of Wantagh. It's school spirit and it's Warrior pride," principal Carolyn Breivogel said of the parade, which went down Wantagh and Beltagh avenues before ending at the high school.

Junior Katie Goldrick, 15, was happy to showcase the "Smarter" float.

"One of the best things about this parade is rolling our float down the street for everyone to see," she said.
