Join me as we kick off Rocketober with Homecoming festivities this weekend – starting with the return of the Homecoming parade, pep rally and bonfire Thursday night.
The parade starts at 6 p.m. and runs from the corner of 15th Avenue and Maple Street north to Oak Creek Parkway, where the pep rally and bonfire will take place at the baseball diamond.
Then it’s game time on Friday, as South Milwaukee hosts Brown Deer at 7 p.m. at Spaltholz Field.
Be sure to get to 15th Avenue and cheer on the school and other local organizations taking part in the parade. (And look for me and my family in the fire truck.)
Also on the Rocketober calendar this weekend is …
- Friday: Yachtoberfest at the South Milwaukee Yacht Club
- Sunday: South Milwaukee Fall Festival of Food Trucks
