HRVHS celebrates autumn tradition

October 19, 2005

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The annual bonfire has been replaced by a smaller, cooler event known as “Bon Gone,” with marshmallows and hotdogs cooked over barbecues at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.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.
