Chilton County High School will take its homecoming celebration to the streets once again Friday. This year, however, the homecoming parade will follow a different route than in years past.

The parade will begin shortly after 3:30 p.m. Starting at Fred’s parking lot, it will proceed west on Fourth Avenue North, turn left onto Sixth Street and proceed south to Second Avenue South, and make a left turn.

On Second Avenue South, the parade will move east toward First Street and turn left in front of the former site of Adair School. Then it will head back to Third Avenue North, make a final left turn and end back at Fred’s.

Homecoming finalists for CCHS are as follows:

•Freshman Representative: Resha Grace, Kacey Simmons, Ashley Ashton Thomas

•Sophomore Representative: Linna Inthavong, Brooke Lewis, Laken Popwell

•Junior Representative: Jessica Mims, Ashley Parker, Brittany Robinson

•Homecoming Queen and Senior Representative: Katie Coker, Stephanie Davis, Linlee Karn, Keondra Looney

•Homecoming King: Delondre DeJarnett, Dyquan Floyd, Shea Rowe

Class Representatives, King and Queen will be crowned during Friday night’s festivities, set to begin at 6:30 p.m. prior to the game.

Students and school staff have celebrated homecoming all week long, dressing up in ’80s attire Monday, as rock stars Tuesday, and as super heroes Wednesday. Thursday they will wear school colors, and Friday each class will wear homecoming shirts.

Float building began last Wednesday and has continued each day this week.

Classes build three hours each afternoon with one “late night” when they are allowed to continue building until 9 p.m.
