Homecoming 2.0

Kaitlyn Steinhiser, News Reporter

The homecoming parade and football game that were supposed to occur on Sept. 18th that were cancelled due to extreme weather conditions have been rescheduled for October 2nd.

Originally, the parade full of homecoming candidates, class floats, the fire department, and floats from multiple MCAS schools was cancelled because of a severe thunderstorm. Before the cancellation was made, though, all of the parade participants were asked to gather in the gym to protect them from possible lightning strikes. After several minutes, the parade was officially cancelled. Floats that had been worked on for weeks at a time were destroyed by the weather, and the participants made their way over to Ames Field for the football game.

Minutes before the game was to start, the officials cancelled it because of severe weather conditions. The stadium was quickly evacuated, and the rain continued to pour down.

The festivities will take place again on October 2nd, though.

The parade is to start at 5:30. It begins at the old Elston Middle School, and it ends at Ames field. For the most part, the parade will have the same lineup as it did on the original homecoming day.

Homecoming festivities such as the crowning of the queen and the announcement of the winner of Spirit Week will take place during halftime at the Senior Night football game. The football seniors will also be recognized during halftime.
