The Flandreau High School homecoming parade will begin at 1 p.m. Friday with a route that takes entries down Second Avenue and back to the school.
The homecoming theme for the Fliers is “Super Heroes,” and the parade is expected to include about 40 entries, said Superintendent Rick Weber.
Three Flandreau bands will play, sports teams will be represented, high school classes will have floats, the Flandreau Indian School ROTC group will march and that Class of 1968 will have a 50th reunion float. Several public entries, including politicians, also are expected, Weber said.
Because of road construction, the parade will leave from the school, go east on Second Avenue, make a loop past the hospital from Prairie and back to Second Avenue west to the school.
Friday is Spirit Day, where everyone is encouraged to wear purple and gold, and senior girls traditionally wear togas, Weber said. Thursday, is Super Hero/Villain dress-up day.
A pep rally will be held in the high school gym following the parade, and the Flandreau Flier Booster Club will have a burger feed at 6 p.m. at the stadium. The Fliers will play Mt. Vernon-Plankinton for their homecoming football game at 7 p.m. A homecoming dance in the lunchroom will follow the game. Canned goods will be collected for admission.
On Thursday, the volleyball team will play at the Flandreau Indian School.
Coronation was held Monday evening. Royalty chosen were Queen Marianna Pavlis and King Kyle Johnson. They are the children of Clay Pavlis & Tonya Pavlis, and Keith Johnson & Sherrie Johnson,
