It's Homecoming Week for Alton High School students, and the festivities will be capped off with the Homecoming Football game tonight and dance on Saturday.  The football game will feature some special guests, which will be featured in pre-game activities and an expanded halftime show.  The pre-game activities actually begin off-campus at 5:15pm as the homecoming parade steps off from Alton Middle School.

Alderman comments

He says there has been a whole week's worth of homecoming activities, and school spirit is high.  Alton comes into tonight's game against conference rival Edwardsville with a record of 1-3.  The Tigers are 3-1 on the year.  You can tune in to Z-1570 at 7:00 for live coverage from Public School Stadium.
