Sonora, Ca — School and town spirit will be on display in downtown Sonora this afternoon for the annual homecoming parade.
Sixth year Sonora High School Principle, Todd Dearden, was Friday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
“There´s no question that it is a united town, united community, and the school is part of the community,” says Deardon. “The Sonora Police are willing to shut down a state highway to have a parade.”
The parade is essentially made up of the entire student body and will include floats, classic cars and the Golden Regiment Marching Band. Immediately following the parade, the band will perform a concert at Courthouse Park.
This is the 30th Anniversary of the Golden Regiment Band, with hundreds of alumni in town participating in this celebration.
The parade is scheduled to begin on Washington Street at 2:20 pm.
The Sonora High Wildcats will try and get back on the winning track this evening when they host Manteca in their 2012 Homecoming game at Dunlavey Field.
The Homecoming Dance follows this evening’s football game.
Tonight’s game will be broadcast on Star 92.7 FM, shortly after 7pm. The games are also streamed live on mymotherlode.com.
The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:47, 7:47, and 8:47am.
