As the air cools and the leaves begin to change, some begin to think about pumpkin spice lattes, but sports fans know it’s football season. Even better is the annual homecoming game, whether its in college or high school, and Jennings County High School’s homecoming week is just around the corner.

Kids and parents alike can all start getting excited, as the annual homecoming parade will make its return to the streets of North Vernon following a two year hiatus. Unlike recent history, the parade will now move to game day, taking place on Friday, September 23 starting at 4:30. The route will follow a similar path from the past, and is shown in the picture accompanying this article. Former teacher and coach Bill Ludwig will lead this year’s parade as the Grand Marshall.

This year’s student theme is College Game Day! Dress up days include Ivy League Day, Neon Day, Class Colors Day (Freshman: Blue and White, Sophomores: Pink and White, Juniors: Red and White, and Seniors: Blue and Black), Jersey Day, and Panther Pride Day.

The annual Powderpuff Flag Football matchups will take place on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. with a $2 gate admission.

We will have coverage next Thursday of the Homecoming King and Queen candidates.
