Well over 1,000 people attended the event, which included rides, games, music, food, face painting, and mechanical bull riding. Unlike the past two years, the weather was just right, allowing everyone to have a good time enjoying the company of fellow Ramonans who came together to enjoy the homecoming festivities.

Homecoming continues tonight with fireworks, the coronation of the school’s 2012 homecoming king and queen, and the varsity football homecoming game. Four sets of “Blasting to the Past” fireworks are scheduled: at the coronation ceremony at 6:45 p.m., team entrance at 6:55 p.m., national anthem at 7 p.m., and the halftime show between 8:15 and 8:30 p.m. The first three fireworks will last about 30 seconds each. The halftime fireworks will be from three to five minutes, reports RHS Associated Student Body Director

“We invite all of our Ramona community to come out and join us for what will be a spectacular evening of football, friends, fun, and fireworks.”

The junior varsity football game will begin at 4:30 p.m. and the varsity homecoming game against Torrey Pines will start after the national anthem.
