Moffat County Homecoming promises good time next week

Sports, bonfire, parade, more in store for week of Bulldog pride

Craig Daily Press Staff Report
Activities such as the annual bonfire provided by Craig Fire/Rescue are among the many happenings next week during Moffat County High School Homecoming Week.

Moffat County High School hosts its annual Homecoming Week festivities starting Monday.

This year’s theme is “New York, New York,” and many favorite activities will make a return, including dress-up days for MCHS and Craig Middle School, though CMS will host its own separate days.

Back by popular demand Wednesday will be the girls’ Powder Puff Football tournament, as well as the student bonfire Thursday, but the big stuff happens Friday with the parade open to all of Moffat County and a community pep rally following at the Safeway parking lot.

Boys soccer and volleyball teams will host multiple home games throughout the week, and cross country will run a home time trial, while varsity football’s meeting with Steamboat Springs will include a delivery of the game ball by helicopter, halftime show, coronation, golf ball drop to benefit the MCHS girls basketball team and more.

All events take place at MCHS, 900 Finley Lane, unless otherwise noted.

For more information on activities, call 970-824-7036.
