Homecoming week kicked off this year with the annual homecoming parade in uptown Rocky Mount. Above, the Franklin County Eagle mascot is roasting a Magna Vista Warrior over an open flame on one of the floats featured in the parade. Homecoming week is a high school tradition full of festivities to promote school spirit.

All last week, students participated in spirit days, dressed up in various attire and participated in class competitions, such as a powder puff game in which the girls played football and guys cheered. The homecoming football game was played Friday night and the annual homecoming dance was held Saturday.

More photos will be featured in Wednesday's edition of the News-Post.
