The annual parade to celebrate homecoming will feature the court, which is composed of two girls from each grade level who were chosen by a student vote. Other parade entrants include dance and cheer teams, the band, fall sports teams, floats from each class and representatives from the school’s autumn musical, “Bye Bye Birdie,” said Liz Murphy, athletic secretary.

Also participating will be Spanish teacher and Grand Marshal Jen Hurley Klee and, for the first time, several grand marshals from previous years, including choir director Bill Campbell. Lakeridge Principal Jennifer Schiele, Assistant Principal Rollin Dickinson and Vice Principal John Parke will take part in the event as well.

The floats start rolling at 2 p.m. at Christ Church Episcopal Parish, 1060 Chandler Road, before wending down A Avenue.

In the evening, the homecoming queen will be crowned during halftime of the Lakeridge-Canby football game. The queen will stand in the center of the field with a bouquet of flowers in her arms and an escort at her side.

The festivities continue on Saturday, when the court and hundreds of Pacers will be getting down at the “Rockin’ Around the Ridge” homecoming dance.

Coming up next month: Lake Oswego High School’s homecoming parade and coronation on Oct. 17 and dance on Oct 18.
