This year you don’t want to miss the events surrounding Dragon Homecoming. Back by popular demand is a combined Homecoming Carnival, Parade and Pep Rally at Southlake Town Square. The events will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 25 in Rustin Park.
The Homecoming Carnival will kick off the celebration in Town Square from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Student groups and sponsors will set up Carnival booths for the community which will provide fun games, face painting and other activities for the whole family. The Homecoming Parade will begin at 6:30 p.m. where it will make its way from the northern parking lot behind Barnes & Noble to the Gazebo area in Rustin Park.
Student organizations from grades 7-12 will have the opportunity to have float entries as well as one float from each of the K-6 campuses at no charge. Students, parents and the community are invited to line the streets of Town Square to watch the parade. Immediately following the parade, the Pep Rally will begin on the steps of Town Hall where float winners will be announced, as well as the winners of the Homecoming Court. The pep rally will involve the Dragon football team, band, cheerleaders, Emerald Belles and Crew.
This year’s theme will be “Under the Sea.” All things sea will be shown as Dragons gather to get ready for the Homecoming game. The 2013 Homecoming game will kick-off at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 27 at Dragon Stadium against the Keller Central Chargers. This game is typically a sell-out, so be sure to mark your calendars for this annual event and plan ahead to be a part of this celebration.
