HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Fall Homecoming at Hutchinson High School is still on, but there are some changes.

"We've had to drop a couple of our long-term traditions," said spokesperson Ray Hemman. "We will have the powderpuff game at 1 p.m. Sunday. It's junior versus senior girls at Gowans. We won't have the parade this year through downtown. The Health Department recommended against it."

Also, the kids won't be finding out who they are voting on for royalty as they normally would.

"Our assemblies to introduce the Homecoming finalists will be done virtually this year," Hemman said. "We've had to change up things a little bit."

Replacing the parade will be a competition for hall decorations. HHS students will decorate hallways of the school Sunday afternoon from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Each class will decorate a hall to represent the theme of Homecoming week. Winners will be announced at the Homecoming game.

Theme for the fall is vintage video games. The Homecoming football game is Friday the 25th against Newton.
