Marble Falls High School (MFHS) Student Council members are hard at work preparing for this year’s Homecoming scheduled for Sept. 25–29 and MFHS ex-students are planning their own homecoming event Sept. 30--the All School Reunion-- including the 50th Anniversary of the Class of 1967.

High school students will be building the Homecoming excitement with a week of in-school spirit days leading up to the Homecoming ceremonies and the football game against Medina Valley, Friday, Sept. 29.

Everyone is invited to participate in the Homecoming Parade, Bon Fire and Pep Rally on Thursday Sept. 28, and Friday night pre-game and halftime celebrations.

The Homecoming Parade will follow the traditional route through the neighborhood north of Marble Falls Middle School (MFMS). Participants will stage in the front loop of MFMS at 1511 Pony Drive. The parade will begin promptly at 6 p.m. from there, northward up Northwood Drive toward the Marble Falls Independent School District Central Offices, 1800 Colt Circle.

To help all the town's students stay safe, parade participants on floats are encouraged to stay seated, and lightly toss soft candies well clear of the street.

Parade fans are asked to remain clear of the street while watching the parade and to be respectful of neighborhood yards by picking up trash after the parade.
Community and school organizations are invited to join in the parade as participants. Anyone with a float or a group wishing to march in the parade can use this link to register: http://bit.ly/2xfaHHY.
