Homecoming Fever Rages As Leesburg High Preps

The halls and campus of Leesburg High School buzzed today with the height of excitement and
anticipation. Reason for the unusual atmosphere is the highlight of the school year-Homecoming.

Excitement revolves around the many weeks spent in preparation of floats, getting dates for the game
and dance, and announcement of the float winners, Homecoming Queen, and the big game with the
Lakeview Red Devils on Memorial Field Friday night.

Tonight's activities begin at 6:30 with the annual parade of decorated cars, floats, and pretty girls down
main street. Following the parade, cheerleader, spectators, floats, and exuberant students will return to
Leesburg High School for the bonfire and pep rally.

Classes and clubs have gathered every possible board, truck, piece of chicken wire, box of napkins,
flower, and any other usable object for their float. Tradition, calls for each group "hiding" their float from
other groups, in an attempt to keep their theme a secret until parade time. Much fun lies in trying to find
another groups float, gathering boxes for the bonfire, and preparing skits for the pep rally.
