Tradition started when Ramonans returned home after Witch fire
Thursday, Oct. 10—
Carnival rides, a dunk tank, mechanical bull riding, music and food are part of Ramona High School’s plans for Coming Home Night tonight.
Presented by the RHS Associated Student Body, the sixth annual event is open to the community and promises activities for all ages.
Coming Home Night, a tradition that started after Ramonans were allowed to return to town after the Witch wildfire of 2007, will be from 5 to 9 p.m. in the high school parking lot, 1401 Hanson Lane.
“It’s going to be a great time,” Holly Fletcher, student representative on the Ramona school board and an RHS ASB member, said at a recent school board meeting.
Part of RHS Homecoming Week, Coming Home Night also will feature a photo booth, henna tattoos and activities geared to young children as well as teens. Operating the photo booth will be Brittney Perdew, a 2006 Ramona High graduate.
ASB adviser Mona Snodgrass promises “bigger and better” carnival rides this year. San Diego Carnival Rides, an El Cajon company, will charge for the carnival rides but will provide the rides at no cost to the ASB, a savings since companies in previous years charged for the rides and to bring the rides to the school.
Ramona High’s Royal Alliance Band will provide music, and the Homecoming Court will be introduced during the festivities.
RHS 2013 Homecoming Week from Oct. 7-12 has a Hollywood theme and features different activities each day of the week. Today is Tropical Thursday and tomorrow is Class Colors Friday.
The homecoming football game will be against Rancho Bernardo High starting at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11. RHS Homecoming king and queen will be crowned in pre-game coronation at 6:30 p.m. at the stadium.
Homecoming Week will conclude with the “Hollywood Night Under the Stars” Homecoming Dance in the school gym.
