New parade route, new venue for skit night at this year’s Homecoming festivities


AMBOY — Amboy High School is celebrating its Homecoming Week. 

The Homecoming football game will be played on Friday, Sept. 17.

Skit Night will be held on Sept. 16, at 7 p.m., on the football field. This is a change of venue this year. 

The Homecoming Parade will start at 2:15 p.m., on Sept. 17, with line up beginning at 1:30 p.m. Not the time change. 

There is a new parade route this year. The route that was published in last week’s paper was incorrect. The new route will start at the south side of the high school on Bacon Street going eat to Metcalf, go south on Metcalf to Provost, then west on Provost to East Avenue, then south on East Avenue to Main Street, then west on Main Street to Jones Street, then north on Jones Street to Bacon, back to the start.
