The pre-game tailgate party will be at the upper football field starting at 5 p.m. The free pop and hot dogs are sponsored by Coca Cola and First Interstate Bank.
And the best part is the football game against the Hot Springs Bison! Kick off will be at 6 p.m. The Bronc quarterback Tate Hostetter will set his team’s sights on setting the Bison quarterback Morgan Harkless down on his heels for a win.
At half-time, the lighting of the “B” will take place and the introduction of the Homecoming Royalty.
The homecoming dance, hosted by the Student Council, will be from 9 to midnight after the game.
Each day of the week is a special day to show team spirit and the students get to show off their ingenuity.
Monday is Disney Day. Disney has made many faces famous-Donald Duck, Daffy, Goofy, Snow White, or any other princess. How about Mickey and Minnie Mouse?
Tuesday is Tacky Tourist Day. Thumb through some old travel magazines and take a look at what a tourist looked like from 1950. There might be some inspiration in that!
Wednesday is Under the Sea Day. That makes a person think of a crab named Sebastian and a mermaid named Ariel. There could be a seahorse rider or a clam shell coat.
Thursday is Class Color Day. Go Purple and White!
Friday is Bronc Day, the day to show off Purple Pride!
