Parade, block party precede game

Homecoming activities at Boulder City High School get into full swing this evening as students, alumni and area residents participate in the annual parade through the downtown area.

The parade begins at 6 p.m. at the school and will travel along California Avenue, Arizona Street, Nevada Way and Fifth Street before it ends in the parking lot on B Street northwest of the football field for a block party.

The block party will include a performance by the band Walk Off Hits, featuring BCHS graduate Ross LaMarca, along with free hot dogs and water. It replaces the traditional bonfire, which was ended last year for insurance and safety reasons.

Students devoted the earlier part of the week preparing floats for tonight's parade.

They also participated in a variety of spirit week activities, including Mad Hatter Day, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum Twin Day and Queen of Hearts Day. Today, students are asked to wear stripes for Cheshire Cat Day and Friday is Tea Party Day and students should wear their class colors.

Joining the high school students for this year's homecoming activities will be students from Garrett Junior High and Mitchell and King elementary schools.

The homecoming game kicks off at 7 p.m. Friday against Sunrise Mountain, which is 3-2 for the season.

Under first-year coach Chris Morelli, the Eagles are off to a 1-4 start.

A dance at 7 p.m. Saturday in the gym concludes the homecoming festivities.
