Warrior pride was on full display at Amityville Memorial High School’s second annual Homecoming festival on Oct. 12, an event that brought the entire community together.

Students of all ages, teachers, administrators, board of education trustees and parents were among those who attended. Each school was represented, along with middle school and high school student clubs, the Amityville Teachers Association, Amityville Parent Teacher Council and community organizations. There was a large turnout of Amityville athletes, who came to the fair following their afternoon practices. 

Activities included fall-themed games like pumpkin bowling and a spider ring toss. There were burgers and hot dogs, a pumpkin decorating station and an Amityville Pride photo booth complete with props.

The event was coordinated by the Homecoming Festival Committee comprised of board of education members, administrators and staff. Fine Arts Director Dr. Fran Fernandez said the purpose of the event was to promote unity and get the community excited for the following day’s Homecoming celebration.
