New Hope's First Annual Fall Fest Set to Replace Homecoming Parade

Over the past few years, New Hope-Solebury High School has held a parade on the Saturday morning of homecoming weekend featuring the school’s sports teams and clubs. Due to the recent cancellation of this year’s parade due to a lack of student interest and money for security, NHS Student government has created the idea of Fall Fest.
While the parade honored the students and faculty of New Hope-Solebury, the Homecoming Parade also created an event that the entire community participated in and enjoyed. Fall Fest is another event we can hold in order to bring the members of the school and the community together.
Weather depending, Fall Fest should be held outside on the main street soccer field where people can walk around to the different student run stands and activities. Some stands that will be included is the selling of hot chocolate, face painting and a volleyball tournament.
Homecoming is a week filled with fun events that aims to celebrate the start of a new school year. This year, homecoming is starting on Monday, Oct.13, and ending that Saturday, Oct. 18, with a dance starting at 7 p.m.
