Craig Daily Press Staff Report

Homecoming Week for Moffat County High School is here at last, and the community activities are many, while a few other fun things round out the weekend in Northwest Colorado.

The power of a parade and pep

The annual Homecoming parade kicks off the celebration Friday afternoon, as people line the streets for floats, the MCHS marching band, community members and more to head west along Victory Way. The energy won’t end once the wheels stop turning, however, as a community pep rally in the Safeway parking lot follows immediately afterward!
