Friday. During the day a pep rally for the school sports team...usually American Football. lasts anywhere from 1 hour to half the day.
Friday night -- football game against the schools bigest rivalry most cases.
Sat night -- School dance where they announce the voting of the king and queen of homecoming.
moday - thursday -- some stupid dress up as blah. like one day will be dress up in Pajamas the next will be a western day and some shit like that.
Friday -- pep rally in school same as above. Friday afternoon usually a parade if in a small town
Friday night -- football game against rivalry
Sat -- homecoming dance to celebrate win or loss. King and queen announced.
Now there are variations to all this too. Some schools pick king and queen at the football game. Some dont have a game and just have a dance. In the little backwoods hick town I was in it was...
We had a parade Friday, then the football game and during the pregame BS the homecoming queen and king were annouced with a school dance that night. This was followed by heavy drinking.
It goes the same way for colleges too. Depending on the size and type of school you will have variations.
