After two years of cancellations due to weather and quarantines, the school reinstated the annual Homecoming Parade. Student Council will conduct the parade tonight at 6:30pm and it will travel down Fulton and around Puckett Elementary school. 

In the past the parade happened the Thursday before the game, but this year STUCO decided to reschedule for today to help reduce scheduling conflicts. This year’s theme is Disney which many clubs chose the classic Disney fare along with a few of their newer franchises such as Star Wars and Marvel.  

The parade leads with the Queen nominees  Ava Timmons, Emma Keister, and Hallee Leathers. For the first time King nominees Cade Hornecker, Gibson Egan, and Seth Meason.

The Danbury Parking lot will be closed off starting at 4:00 p.m. till the end of the parade.
