It’s homecoming Friday in Huron Township.

And it looks like Mother Nature is cooperating for everyone heading out to the homecoming game tonight.

Kickoff for the homecoming game against Airport High School is at 7 p.m. Friday.

The forecast all day calls for mostly clear skies with highs in the low 80s, and by kickoff tonight, it’ll remain dry and highs will be in the mid 70s.

That’s perfect football weather, if you ask me.

Homecoming king and queen will be crowned at half time.

Friday afternoon, the homecoming parade will start at 4 p.m. at the soccer fields on Huron River Drive and head south to Arrowhead Stadium at Huron High School.

The homecoming dance is on Saturday.

Anyone interested in sharing their homecoming photos for publication are encouraged to do so.

To share your photos, post on our Facebook and Twitter pages, or email your photos to Editor@HuronHub.com.

The Huron Hub wishes everyone participating in the festivities tonight and this weekend a safe and fun time.

Go Chiefs!

Correction: An initial post said the homecoming parade started at 3:30 p.m. This article has been updated to reflect the correct starting time.

From The Detroit Free Press:

Who is your favorite local high school sports team? Maybe it’s a team that finally beat their cross-town rivals after years of coming up short. Or a team that overcame a huge obstacle (on or off the field) and came together to support one another. The Detroit Free Press wants to hear your favorite team’s story!

The voting period begins April 30, 2019 at 11:59 am EST and runs through May 14, 2019 at 11:59 am EST. You may vote once per day.

The three teams that garner the highest number of votes will be contacted via email by May 17, 2019 and invited to attend the Detroit Free Press Sports Awards presented by Detroit Area Honda Dealers. They will walk the red carpet, find out if they won, and celebrate with other local nominees. The winning team will be announced live and called to the stage to receive their trophy.

The Huron boys won 7 out of 10 tournaments this year including the State Division 2 Title. They were also just honored at the State Capital.

The Huron High School state champ bowling team were invited to Lansing Tuesday by State Rep. Darrin Camilleri (D-Brownstown Township).

“I was honored to host the champions of Huron’s bowling team here at the Capitol this week as they celebrated their state championship,” Camilleri said.

“It is always terrific to see the youth in our community achieve success; and in the world of high school sports, there is nothing greater than bringing home a state championship for your school. I’m so proud of this tremendous group for their hard work and dedication to their team and I hope this victory serves as a reminder for them of the greatness that lies within each and every one of them.”
