DHS celebrates Homecoming with a parade Friday

Davis High School will celebrate Homecoming on Friday with all of the usual festivities, from an afternoon parade in downtown Davis to exciting football games and a carnival at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium.

This year’s parade gets under way at 1:15 p.m. Friday at Central Park in downtown Davis. The parade, themed “A Hogwarts Homecoming,” will make its way through downtown before heading up B Street toward the high school.

Participants will include students, staff and community members, while the class floats will pay homage to the houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry (think Gryffindor and Hufflepuff) from J.K. Rowling’s best-selling Harry Potter series.

Back at the high school, 315 W 14th St., various student clubs and organizations will host information booths and offer food and crafts for children at the annual Homecoming carnival just outside the stadium.

Action gets under way on the football field with the junior varsity game against Laguna Creek High School beginning at 5 p.m. and the varsity game getting under way at 7:15 p.m. The Homecoming king and queen will be crowned at halftime of the varsity game.

All week long, meanwhile, students will be celebrating Homecoming on the Davis High campus. The annual door decorating contest — in which individual teachers decorate their classroom doors with the help of students — began Monday, with judging scheduled for Wednesday. Awards will be for “Best Door” and “Best Door and Beyond,” and come with lunchtime pizza parties for the two winning classes.

Students also will enjoy lunchtime activities all week, including a barbecue on the Quad, live music, costume competitions and more.
