It's Homecoming! Parade begins at 4:45 p.m. Friday; homecoming football game Saturday at 3 p.m.

In the high school halls, Wolverine pride is running deep as students gear up for two days of Homecoming events — beginning Friday, with the ever popular parade of floats, and ending Saturday, with a traditional Homecoming dance.

King and queen will be crowned during the pep rally at Turnbull Gym Friday afternoon. Wolverine spirit spreads into the evening at a local church, Friday Harbor Presbyterian, where high school students will gather for a tasty bowl of chili, card games and more.

Saturday afternoon sports include volleyball and, of course, the big Homecoming football game.
