TK Celebrates Homecoming Oct. 7

The fun Friday starts with the Homecoming parade starting at 5 p.m. The parade lines up at Lee Elementary and travels down Main Street to Bender Road ending at Page Elementary. After the parade, the tailgate party begins in the high school athletic parking lot and the high school cafeteria. There will be games, inflatables and lots of TK Spirit.

TVC Church will again provide free hot dogs and lemonade. Kona Ice will be selling ice cups for $5 as a fundraiser for the Early Childhood Center PTO.

Be sure to take a seat in the stadium early and enjoy the presentation of the Distinguished Alumni Award. The Thornapple Kellogg Alumni Association presents this award each year to one or more alumni who have made significant contributions in their professional fields. The TK Trojan Marching Band will perform their final home game pregame and halftime shows. They will be joined by members of the TKMS band for part of the performance.

At halftime, the Homecoming court will be introduced on the field and the king and queen for Homecoming 2022 crowned.


The game, against Kenowa Hills, starts at 7 p.m. and is the final home football game of the regular season. Tickets are $5 per person ages kindergarten through adult.

Students will start celebrating homecoming week with dress up days all week long. The high school homecoming dance takes place Saturday, Oct. 8 from 7 to 10 p.m.
