Cambridge Homecoming 2012


The combined Homecoming Celebration of the two small Idaho towns of Cambridge and Midvale succeeds in carrying on that great high school tradition.  Homecoming has evolved into a week-long production that ends with a football game and dance.  Very Americana!  Dress up contests during the school week are pure fun with comical themes such as “twin day”, “nerd day” and “sports switch”  (Don’t’ ask!).  The Homecoming Parade on Friday afternoon before the game slows traffic on Idaho’s main north/south route, Highway 95, to a crawl for 15 minutes or so.  Farm trucks and tractors pull flat bed trailers loaded with students and faculty through town led by the spirited Cambridge High School Band.  Kings and Queens, Princes and Princesses ride in convertibles waving to proud parents and grandparents that line the street!  Cheerleaders lead a pep rally following the parade and then the Mighty Titans take to the field for a game of 8 man football under the lights.  Long live homecoming!
