DHS plans for safe, festive homecoming on Oct. 30th

Ten amazing DHS homecoming queen nominees are rolling out the red carpet for alumni, fans, families and visitors who are eager to celebrate Homecoming 2020 in a safe and festive environment.

According to Homecoming 2020 Sponsor Leanne Rogers, the annual homecoming parade on Thursday October 29th will be a “reverse parade” in the DHS parking lot starting at 5:30 p.m.

“The homecoming queen nominees will be lined up, smiling and waving from their vehicles, while people drive through to greet them,” said Rogers. “The pep rally will be outdoors at the DHS track immediately following the parade. Then on Friday night, October 30th at Munson Stadium, we will crown our 2020 DHS Homecoming Queen during halftime ceremonies.

“The things that have changed this year because of Covid are being implemented for the health and safety of everyone involved,” said Rogers. “There will be no Royalty Presentation of sweethearts and queen nominees at the high school, no traditional downtown parade although we hope everyone will drive out to DHS and enjoy the Reverse Parade, and no presentation of this year’s sweethearts before the game on Friday night. We’re just trying to keep things as safe as possible for everyone involved.”

Rogers says the young ladies in this year’s DHS homecoming court are great kids and strong role models who are actively involved in their school and community. “Our homecoming queen nominees are very excited about the week’s upcoming events and are proud and honored to have been chosen by their classmates to represent Denison High School.”
