Plenty happens around Hood River County this week as students celebrate 2005 Homecoming Week.
Coronation of the Hood River Valley High School Queen and King happens at halftime of Friday’s 7 p.m. football game against Crook County.
Other public events include Friday’s annual Homecoming Parade.
The annual bonfire has been replaced by a smaller, cooler event known as “Bon Gone,” with marshmallows and hotdogs cooked over barbecues at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. The pie-eating contest is Wednesday at noon.
Thursday brings the return of another Homecoming tradition, the Air Guitar assembly, at 10:40 a.m. Check in at the office and go to the gym — if you can find a seat.
From there, students will continue with float decorations at Hood River County Fairgrounds until 9 p.m.
The parade starts at 1:30 p.m. Friday on the Heights.
On floats, on vehicles, and on foot, students will make their way to the post-parade concert and other activities at Jackson Park.
The Homecoming Dance is scheduled for 8 p.m. Saturday at the high school.
Students strive for points in class competitions based on hall decorations, dress-up days, Air Guitar, Floats, Pie Eating Contest, Bon Gone Games, sports attendance and other activities.
