School spirit will makes its way down Main Street this Friday for the Warren County High School Homecoming Parade.

Start time is set for 1:30 p.m.

Parade lineup will take place on West Colville Street with the official parade start at Tire Mart on Main Street. The parade will meander the length of Main Street before ending at the Farmers Market.

Students have been diligently working on their class floats at locations around the county with some classes putting in more effort than others.

“The floats are top secret,” said WCHS teacher and homecoming organizer Amy Ware. “We’ve been more crunched this year with the amount of time we’ve had to work on the floats because we didn’t know if we’d get to have a parade because of COVID. I know one or two of the floats are going to be pretty good, but I don’t know if everyone is going all out like that.”

Following the parade, the floats will make their way to Nunley Stadium where the winner will be announced at halftime after the crowning of the Homecoming King and Queen. Students were tight-lipped Tuesday when asked who they thought would be crowned King and Queen.

While final details are added to parade floats and formal homecoming attire, an eye will also be kept on the weather.

The latest forecast Tuesday afternoon calls for a 25% chance of rain Friday night. The homecoming game between the Pioneers and Shelbyville begins at 7 p.m.

“I’d hate for it to rain with all the tissue paper that will be on the floats and with the kids all dressed up,” said Ware.
