PENDLETON — Pendleton Heights High School’s Homecoming celebrations took place under sunny skies Friday, with a pre-game parade through Falls Park and downtown and to the school.
Parade marshal Pam Schug, Pendleton Heights’ school nurse before retiring in the spring, was in the lead car.
The parade included the Marching Arabians; high school, middle school,
and elementary clubs and
teams; cheerleaders; Homecoming Queen candidates and princesses; and class floats.
Some other parade participants were Madison County Shriners Desert Patrol, Boy Scouts, fire trucks, churches and classic cars, as well as silver and golden anniversary football team members.

the silver and golden anniversary teams took place at the start of halftime ceremonies.
