“Homecoming is a huge event because not only does the school take part in it but so does the community,” said Freedom Leadership student Nikki Legaspi. “Homecoming is when we recognize the members of our community by holding a parade that leads to the football game. This year we’ve added a carnival so that the community can really get involved with Homecoming.”
The community is invited to the Homecoming Rally on Thursday, Sept. 29 at 3:30 p.m. Each class will perform skits, and members of the Homecoming Court will try to win over the crowd before the king and queen are crowned.
Homecoming festivities resume Friday with the parade, which will include performances from local cheer and dance groups, at 5 p.m. at Diamond Hills Sports Club, 151 Neroly Road. Proceeding east on Neroly and finishing at the high school, the parade will feature class floats designed by the students. This year’s theme is superheroes. The freshman will be the X-Men; the sophomores, the Incredibles; juniors will become members of the Justice League, and seniors will play the role of the Avengers.
During the carnival following the parade, guests will get to meet the homecoming court and participate in a variety of activities hosted by Freedom student organizations. The carnival will also include music and food and a plethora of fun and games to entertain the crowd before the football game kicks off at 7 p.m.
