On Friday, September 29, the UHS Homecoming Pep Rally will be in the Oscar Adams Gym at 11:30 a.m. The Parade will start shortly after, at 12:30 p.m. The time is a change from previous years. The parade will include the Homecoming King and Queen and their Court, UHS Marching Band, floats created by student committees representing student groups and grade levels, student athletic teams, and a variety of special guests and USD #116 administrators. The Court will also be introduced during the UHS Varsity Football game the next day. Because the varsity football game will be held on Saturday, there will be no Tailgreat event this year.
The parade route will begin at the high school on Race Street at Iowa. The parade will continue north on Race Street to Main Street, east on Main Street to Vine Street, south on Vine Street to Washington Street, west on Washington Street to Broadway Avenue and finish in the high school parking lot.
