Barrington will be buzzing this weekend with all of the Homecoming activities planned and people in town for football & soccer games, high school reunions, parties, pep rallies, the Homecoming dance and tomorrow’s big parade.
The festivities are underway at Barrington High School today with Spirit Day and a pep assembly, the Filly football game kicks off tonight at 7 p.m. at Barrington Community Stadium and the school’s video department is playing a big role in revving students up for the weekend. The theme for tomorrow night’s Homecoming Dance is Welcome to the Jungle and you can hear BHS students and staff talk about this year’s dance and share their favorite homecoming memories in the video below…
