Are you ready to see the Prescott High School football team ride on the fire engine, hear the marching band play the fight song, and enjoy the bonfire afterward?
Then get your friends and family to courthouse plaza before 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 5, to stake out your space to watch Prescott High School's Homecoming parade.
Prescott High School graduates, current students and their families and the community are invited to take part in the parade, which starts at 6 p.m., and the bonfire at Prescott Mile High Middle School that starts immediately afterward about 6:25 p.m., said Courtney Snow, Prescott High School student council adviser.
The Homecoming game will kick off 7 p.m. Friday when the PHS Badgers will take on the Barry Goldwater High School Bulldogs from Phoenix.
Admission to the game is $5 for adults and $3 for students.
PHS alumni should stop by the alumni booth at the game and pick up a sticker they can wear denoting the year they graduated, Snow said.
The PHS Pride of Prescott marching band will perform and the Homecoming king and queen will be crowned at halftime. The Homecoming dance will follow the game.
Blue and gold alumni T-shirts will also be available for $5 at the game and all proceeds will go to the student council to help support student activities, Snow said.
Students will take part in Spirit Days to celebrate this 101st Homecoming with the theme "Badger Pride is Timeless" by dressing up as tourists on Monday, in 1950s style on Tuesday, in Western gear to celebrate 100 years of statehood on Wednesday, as Greeks and Romans on Thursday, and in blue and gold on Friday, Snow said.
The Homecoming pep assembly begins at 9:50 a.m. with a cheer dance by the YMCA's youth classes and Homecoming royalty candidates performing skits, Snow said.
