Homecoming festivities continue this week in Polk County as the Cedartown Bulldogs host LaGrange and halftime festivities will see a queen crowned for the 2019-2020 school year.
The events begin on Thursday, Oct. 3 at 4:30 p.m. when Cedartown’s homecoming parade kicks off on Main Street.
Schools, community league football teams, cheerleaders, and other community entries are encouraged to participate. The school is also also encouraging downtown storefronts to show their Bulldog pride by decorating their windows this week for the occasion.
The homecoming football game will be held Friday at Cedartown Memorial Stadium at 7:30 p.m. Halftime events will include the presentation of class representatives and the crowning of the homecoming queen.
Anyone interested in entering a float or being in the 2019 Cedartown Homecoming parade needs to pick up an entry form from the main office at Cedartown High School.
