The air is getting cooler, school has been in session for almost a month and a half and autumn is in full swing. It can only mean one thing—homecoming. An American tradition that’s been around just north of a century, it’s a chance for alumni to visit their alma mater and for current underclassmen to sup on heaping amounts of school spirit. As the saying, go big or go home, and Garden City High School has always had a reputation for having some of the more spirited homecoming events on Long Island. This year will be no exception. On Saturday, Oct. 20, the parade will kick off with a marching band at noon on Seventh Street and culminate at the high school’s Warren King Field, where the Trojans will take on th Warriors at 2 p.m. Given the ongoing excellence of the current GHS squad, Wantagh High School should expect to have their hands full.
