Wednesday afternoon’s FHS Homecoming parade wrapped up with a pep rally on the south side of the Fayetteville square.

Fayetteville High School began the 2011 Homecoming celebration Wednesday evening with its annual downtown parade.

The parade followed its traditional route from Harmon Field to the south side of the Fayetteville square, but not on its usual day.

The event, which is normally held the Friday of the Homecoming football game, was moved to Wednesday to accommodate expected Bikes, Blues & BBQ traffic congestion.

A pep rally followed the parade along with a recognition ceremony for this year’s Hall of Honor inductees and the 2011 homecoming court.

The Bulldogs football team will play Springdale High School for this year’s homecoming game at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30 at Harmon Field.
