Homecoming is celebrated in grand style in Avon. A week’s worth of fun included a festive Spirit Week at Avon High. It included different themes for each day of the week, all leading up to the Thursday evening Homecoming Parade from Avon High to Joe Firment Stadium for a Pep Rally and Powder Puff football game. The official Homecoming Court presentation took place on the field before the game against Lakewood. The week concluded with the annual Homecoming dance at Avon High School on Saturday night.
