Homecoming Week 2023 for Charles City Schools starts Sunday (09.10).
Festivities start this Sunday with the Booster Club Tailgate at the Elk’s Lodge from 5 to 7 pm. The event features free food provided by Hy-Vee, yard games and a pep rally. However, because of the burn ban in effect for all of Floyd County, the bonfire has been canceled.
Homecoming faculty counselor Sarah Downing says activities continue to ramp up on Monday (09.11).
Jada Litterer with the student Homecoming committee says Monday also kicks off dress up days at the High School and Middle School.
Litterer says Charles City elementary students will also get into the Homecoming spirit.
Charles City Homecoming festivities come to a head on Friday with a pep rally at 1:30 pm in Comet Gym, which also includes the crowning of the Homecoming queen and King. The Comets will host Mason City for the Homecoming football game, with Homecoming dance Saturday night, September 16th.
