“Devils through the Decades” is the theme of this year’s Davis High School Homecoming, which kicked off with a rally and dance last Friday and concludes with this Friday’s football game against Monterey Trail at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium.

In between, students have been busily designing class floats for Friday’s parade through downtown Davis and celebrating spirit days at school.

Student Madi Yule, chairwoman of this year’s parade committee, said sophomores, juniors and seniors have all been building their floats in separate locations “to keep it a secret and make it a little more fun the day of the event.”

In addition to class floats, the parade will feature fall sports teams and school clubs, as well as representatives of the DHS Blue & White Foundation, the school board and more.

“The pep band leads the way,” Yule said, “and other groups like the sophomore, junior and senior floats and royalty follow in the parade.”

This year’s grand marshals are DHS Principal Will Brown and teacher Eric Bastin, winner of Rotary Teacher of the Year award last year.

Both are “super excited” to be in their first parade, Yule said.

The parade gets underway on C Street alongside Central Park at 1:15 p.m. Friday and wends its way through downtown before heading back to the high school. The parade heads south on C  Street, east on Second, north on F, west on Fourth, north on C, west on Sixth, north on B, west on 14th and north on Oak Avenue to the stadium.

There, the JV football game will start at 5 p.m., followed by the varsity game at 7:15 p.m. Tickets are $7 general and $4 for students, seniors and children. The Homecoming king and queen will be crowned during the varsity game.

DHS students will have long since gotten into the spirit thanks to activities at school all week. In addition to the annual classroom door decorating contest, students also participated in fun dress-up days culminating in Friday’s “freakishly blue” spirit day.
