The excitement will continue to grow as Homecoming Day draws nearer and scores of those who wear or have worn the purple and white descend on Brundidge to celebrate and pay tribute to their alma mater Friday.

Students at Pike County High have been involved in spirit activities all week and Wednesday, twin day, was double the fun.

Today, the students will be decked out in their Sunday best and Friday they will show their true colors – purple and white.

The Homecoming Pep Rally is set for today at 2:20 p.m. and everyone is invited to attend.

The varsity cheerleaders have promised that the Homecoming 2000 Pep Rally will be the most exciting one ever with painted students’ faces and pies in a teacher’s face.

Aris D’Andrea said during the week of celebration students have placed jars on their teachers’ desks and collected money to see which teacher will get the pie in the face.

"The teacher who gets the most money donated with get a pie in the face during the pep rally," D’Andrea said, laughing. "That’s a good incentive for us teachers not to go the pep rally."

On Friday, Main Street will be lined with Bulldog fans as the Homecoming 2000 Parade makes its way from the IGA store on the north side back to Pike County High School. The parade will begin at 1:30 and everyone is encouraged to join the fun.

Pregame activities will begin at Bulldog Stadium Friday night

at 7 p.m. and the highlight will be the introduction of the homecoming court and the crowning of the homecoming queen.

At 7:30, the Bulldogs and the Barbour County Jaguars will tangle on the gridiron before an expected large homecoming crowd. A dance will be held for students and their guests after the game, bringing homecoming week to heel-kicking end.
