Warren County High School has announced its Homecoming Court with plans to once again offer a Homecoming Parade through downtown McMinnville.

Homecoming is set for Friday, Oct. 15 with the Pioneers scheduled to play Shelbyville that night.

Last year due to COVID concerns, the traditional Homecoming Parade was canceled.

“We’re going to try to go back to having a Homecoming Parade, provided the COVID numbers don’t get too bad,” said WCHS executive principal Clark George. “There have already been some initial meetings where there have been discussions about float designs and we’d really like to have the parade. It is subject to change because we have to make decisions based on what’s best for our kids.”

Warren County is known for its elaborate parade floats, many of which incorporate mechanical features and shoot fire.

Those floats weren’t made last year, although there was a scaled-down version of the parade held in the halls of WCHS during school hours.

A Homecoming King and Queen will be crowned during halftime of the Oct. 15 game.
