South Lakes High School has been celebrating Homecoming at school all week, but here comes the big public celebration.
The annual Homecoming Parade marches from Hunters Woods Village Center to South Lakes High School at 5 p.m. on Friday.
The bands, floats, cheerleaders, students from elementary schools in the SLHS pyramid, and more will make their way from Hunters Woods to the school on Colts Neck Road, then in the eastbound land down South Lakes Drive. Traffic on those roads will be blocked during the parade.
The best places to watch (and catch candy thrown from the floats) are on the east side of South Lakes or right outside Hunters Woods Village Center along Colts Neck.
South Lakes Homecoming football game begins at the school at 7 p.m. The undefeated Seahawks (8-0), ranked No. 8 in this week’s Washington Post poll, host Hayfield.
Hayfield is 7-1 and has won five straight games.
SLHS’ Homecoming king and queen will be crowned at halftime.
