After being postponed due to inclement weather, Amityville Memorial High School was excited to hold its annual homecoming parade on Oct. 28.
The high school’s marching band provided music throughout the parade, which included school administrators, board members, faculty, local elected officials, cheerleaders, and students from various Amityville schools. Marchers started their journey at the LIRR Amityville station and paraded down the local streets as onlookers cheered. Students dressed up and floats were decorated to represent this year’s theme of cartoon shows and sitcoms. Parents and supportive community members were also in attendance as they watched the group march down Broadway through the heart of the Village of Amityville all the way to the high school.
The high school’s cheerleading team held an amazing performance during halftime of the Amityville Warriors’ varsity football game against the Comsewogue Warriors. The high school’s marching band performed a medley of hits from Earth, Wind & Fire that included “Fantasy,” “Getaway,” “In the Stone,” and “September.” Halftime celebrations concluded with the crowning of the homecoming king Derrick Prince and queen Derrikah Legette.
Despite the Warriors 48-6 loss against Comsewogue High School, the district would like to thank everyone who came out to show their support.
