The big day has arrived at Wood River High School—Homecoming 2011 and tonight's football game against Jerome.

Here's a review of today's activities and the nominees for the Homecoming court:

Boost Wood River High School spirit for tonight's Homecoming football game against the Jerome Tigers by wearing the green and attending the pre-game Homecoming Tailgate Barbecue.

Wood River head football coach Kevin Stilling said, "It's a green out! Everybody should wear their green."

Today's tailgate barbecue will feature a full dinner, pizza by the slice, drinks, ice cream and baked desserts. It will be served from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the parking lot adjacent to Hailey's Phil Homer Stadium. Prices will range from $1 to $8.

Proceeds from the barbecue will go toward the 2012 Senior Bash celebration following graduation next spring.

Also today: Pep Assembly and the traditional Homecoming Parade, 2:30 p.m. down Main Street. The football game begins at 7 p.m. and features the announcement of the royalty. The post-game Hawaiian Homecoming Dance from 9:30-11:30 p.m. is for students with identification.
