There's nothing quite like homecoming in Chippewa Falls. The week—and all the activities, events and celebrations that take place—has become a true point of pride in our community.
If you attended Chi-Hi, you may recall taking part in homecoming festivities yourself. Like always, the Student Council is planning some fun, creative events for the entirety of Spirit Week. This year, the festivities run September 24-29.
Throughout the week, students will take part in a wide range of activities to show their school spirit. While the Student Council is at work picking a theme and planning activities, a few events will look very familiar to our alumni and community members.
As always, Friday is Spirit Day. The afternoon will feature a pep rally to cheer on the Mighty Cardinals football team before the big game.
Then, on Friday at 7 p.m., the Chi-Hi Mighty Cardinals football team will take on the River Falls Wildcats at Dorais Field. Immediately following the game, there will be the annual bonfire and pig roast that has become such an important part of homecoming over the years. That event starts at 9 p.m.
The homecoming dance is Saturday night, with students taking part in one of the most memorable events of their high school years.
Homecoming is such a terrific event for the entire Chippewa Falls community, including our students, families, community members and, perhaps most of all, our wonderful alumni. We hope you can come out to the football game and enjoy the pig roast and bonfire afterward.
Go Mighty Cardinals!
