The Fox Chapel Area High School homecoming festivities are set for Friday as the Foxes will battle the North Hills Indians at 7 p.m. at the high school stadium.

Activities will include face painting, temporary tattoos and a photo booth. There will be a giant slide, an obstacle course and a dunk tank.

There will also be a free petting zoo — including a baby zebra and camel. The baby animals can be fed for a small cost.

Pony rides will also be available for a fee.

Live music from the students and faculty will be featured.

Parking will be available at at O'Hara Elementary School.

The carnival will end with a short procession on the campus led by the Marching Foxes and include the homecoming court.

This year's homecoming theme is “Decades” and the freshmen, sophomore, junior and senior classes will continue the tradition of performing their annual skits in the stadium prior to the game.

The members of the homecoming court are seniors Nathaniel Friday, Lauren Kelly, Colin Martin, Sarah Moltz, Brian Papich, Anthony Veltri, Isabella Verardi and Rachel Wight.

The homecoming court attendants are juniors Natalie Jaffe and Carrington Vaughn, sophomores Michael Bonavita and Aleyna Collins, and freshmen Jacob Hughes and Calle Zmenkowski.

The homecoming king and queen will be crowned and the skit winners will be announced during halftime.

Admission to the game is $3 for students and $5 for adults. Admission is free for district senior citizens who have a Gold Card.

All homecoming activities are coordinated and sponsored by the Fox Chapel Area High School Student Government.

The high school is located at 611 Field Club Road in O'Hara.
