Fox Chapel Area homecoming include skits, food trucks and football
Fox Chapel Area School District will celebrate Oct. 6 with skits, carnival games and a giant slide prior to the homecoming football game.
Themed “Decades,” the homecoming festivities are open to the public at the upper field of the high school campus along Field Club Road.
A carnival will kick off at 4 p.m. with inflatables and a free petting zoo that includes a baby zebra and camel. Pony rides will be available for a small fee. Music from students and faculty will be featured and there will be food trucks.
Students in all grades will continue the tradition of performing skits at 6 p.m. in the stadium prior to the Foxes taking on Hampton at 7 p.m. in the homecoming game. A king and queen will be crowned and skit winners will be announced at halftime of the game.
Game admission is $3 for students and $5 for adults. Senior citizens with a district gold card get in for free.
Parking is available at the high school and at O'Hara Elementary, a few blocks away on Cabin Lane. Members of the homecoming court are seniors Liam Botos, Luke Brown, Abbe Cohen, Cooper Collins, Cara Levicoff, Cassandra Oliva, Brianna Smith and William Zytnick.
Court attendants are juniors Justin Breen and Kristen Friday, sophomores Christian Fitch and Grace Sisson and freshmen Melina Bradley and Ethan Flanders.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a snack item to donate to the district's Backpacks for Hunger program and for All of Us Care's after-school program. The collection is being hosted by the Fox Chapel Educators Association.
