The parade, football game, and dance: Here’s what to know about Galesburg Homecoming 2022

There’s a fever going around Galesburg High School this week.

Disco Fever is the theme for Galesburg High School homecoming festivities, which start today (Monday) with float building and end Saturday with a homecoming dance. In between, there will be plenty of activities, from class color day, a powder puff football game, a downtown parade and of course the big football game Friday against Quincy.

The homecoming parade is at 4 p.m. Friday along the traditional Galesburg parade route on Main Street and ending at the Knox County Courthouse.

The public can get their first look inside the remodeled Galesburg Junior/Senior High School at a community open house from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday before the football game.
