MASON CITY – Annual Homecoming festivities begin Sunday night in Mason City. This year’s theme is “Rewriting History in Red and Black Ink”.
Homecoming at Mason City High School is the week of September 28 culminating on Friday, October 3 with the Homecoming game against Marshalltown and the high school dance on Saturday, October 4. A new idea being tried this year is to give out prizes during the dance as a way to build excitement and keep the students in a safe place.
The fun starts Sunday night, September 30, with a PowderPuff football at Mohawk Stadium. The senior girls will take on the junior girls at 7 p.m. Football players will reverse roles and be the cheerleading squad for the event. Admission is $1/free will donation and bake sale, with 50% of the proceeds from this event going to the “Kids helping Kids, Children’s Miracle Network Telethon.”
Students will participate in a variety of activities this week at the High School.
On Friday, a pep assembly and parade will be held. New this year will be a Grand Marshall, the first ever. That announcement has not yet been made. The parade route is from MCHS to Central Park via State Street.
