The traditional route of the Homecoming Parade through Town Center has been moved.
The downtown Mercer Island route has been shifted to the streets surrounding Mercer Island High School, say school district officials, because the MIHS marching band is performing in both the parade and in on Oct. 21.
The homecoming parade will start at 5 p.m. on Oct. 21 in the school district parking lot and travel along SE 42nd Street, turn left onto 92nd Avenue SE and end at the MIHS back staff parking lot. As always, there will be floats, cheerleaders, homecoming royalty and candy for the kids.
The Pizza Pig-Out, a key fundraiser for the MIHS music department, will follow the parade at 5:30 p.m. Please contact Parker Bixby (or by clicking here) for pre-sale tickets. Checks in the amount of $10 should be made out to "MIHS Band".
MIHS football’s Senior Night will begin around 6:50 p.m. and the game, which will feature the Islanders against the Sammamish Totems, will start at 7:30 p.m. Pre-sale tickets for the game will be available from Suzie Scaringi in the ASB office on Thursday, Oct. 20 and Friday, Oct. 21 from 7:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. Checks should be made out to: MIHS (adults $6, K-8 $4).
All band members fifth through twelfth grade will perform during halftime. In addition, the homecoming royalty court will be presented at halftime as well. The entire Mercer Island community is encouraged to attend these events!
