Metro-East Lutheran High School is planning an Arabian Knights adventure homecoming celebration.
The festivities begin early in the week with themed days for Spirit Week and schoolwide activities. The week will culminate with the homecoming football game Friday evening, Oct. 10, and the dance on Saturday evening, Oct. 11.
This year the MELHS Gridiron parents are hosting a pre-game party on the parking lot from 5:15-6:45 p.m. just before kickoff. Local musicians, Matt Taul and Bob Oettle, will be playing. Foodies will have an opportunity to enjoy local flavors from Chick-Fil-A, Culver’s, Bobby’s famous caramel apples, Wang Gang, and Randy’s BBQ. There will be kid-friendly activities including face-painting to help cheer on the MELHS Knights as they compete against the Mount Olive Wildcats.
Vendors will donate a portion of their profits to the MELHS football team to help in purchasing much-needed equipment and program items.
There is no charge for the pre-game party and entrance into the game is $5 for adults and $4 for children and seniors.
