Editor's Note: The SNAP Battle of the Bands will be held Friday at 8 p.m.
Hundreds of students will take to the street on Saturday as
part of the Spring-Ford Area High School Homecoming Parade.
The parade, expanded this year to maximize interaction with the community, will begin at noon and run from Seventh Avenue to Third Avenue on Main Street just prior to the 2 p.m. varsity football game against Methacton High School.
Roughly 200 student groups are expected, as well as municipal and school district leaders and emergency service vehicles, culminating homecoming week at the high school, which includes a Powder Puff football game on Friday at 5 p.m at Coach McNelly Stadium, and a Battle of the Bands on Friday evening.
“It’s a great event for the high school and the school district in general,” said Robb Colyar, Spring Ford High School 12th Grade House Principal, according to Ram Country TV. “A lot of the intention behind spirit week is to benefit the community, plus show school spirit”
At 8 p.m. Friday, Students Need an Alternative Party (SNAP) will host a Spring-Ford Live battle of the bands at the 8th Grade Center. Tickets are $6 per person.
Local businesses are ready for the festivities– Annemarie’s in Royersford posted a photo of the business’s window, showing Spring-Ford Pride.
