One of the most anticipated events of the school year

The Homecoming Dance is one of the most anticipated events of the school year, “It’s the thing I look forward to the most” sophomore Sierra Holmes said. Unlike prom, which is reserved for the upperclassmen, Homecoming is a week for everyone. Whether you go to the dance with a date or with a group of friends, anyone is welcome.
This year brought something new to Legend High School. With the annual dance comes a new location. This year was the first time Homecoming was held outside. With the use of a tent, a football field, and new lights, this year’s homecoming was a night to remember.
While the location may have hit it off with the crowds, people disagreed on how the rest of the night went. “The DJ was horrible,” sophomore Madi Travis said. “Every time we got going, he cut off the song.”
Others differ in their opinion however. “I enjoyed it a lot,” senior Eden Royer said. “It was better than most homecomings because I was with my love and my best friends.” When asked about the changes made this year, Eden said “It was different in a good way.”
Whether you liked the new set-up or preferred previous years, there’s no denying that this year’s turnout and energy was higher than past years. “You could barely move it was so packed,” sophomore Sierra Holmes said. “People were jumping all around and into each other, but everyone was doing it so no one could complain. I had fun.”
