Across Davis High, groups of spirited students are getting to work on the floats that will be at the back of the Homecoming parade this Friday. Anyone can help to build these creative and diverse floats before time runs out.
Each grade’s float this year will be dramatic and daunting for those building it after school this week. Sophomores are working with a sci-fi theme, juniors with a western theme and seniors with an action superhero theme.
Student Government has been in charge of planning most, if not all of the Homecoming events. Senior class president Sophia Fingerman has been organizing the building. “We’re super excited about making it the best year yet,” Fingerman said.
For the actual putting together of the rolling exhibits, students use a flatbed trailer and lots of PVC pipes as borders where cardboard walls can be put up. Other than that, the possibilities are practically limitless.
Although senior vice president Cate Scheuring is only working on the senior float, her list for floats she’s looking forward to seeing is extensive, with mentions including BDP squad, car club and her own senior float.
“The seniors always want to have the best, and the underclassmen are always trying to beat them,” Scheuring said.
Leaders in Student Government are always trying to get a high turnout for the building since it takes so much effort to decorate the trailers. “We would love for anyone who wants to get involved to get involved,” Scheuring said.
Float building is open after school to anyone who wants to participate and contribute to their class float. For more information, Scheuring suggests going to ASC-100 this week, as the details are always changing.
“I love when we all show up for the parade on Friday in our costumes and get to enjoy all of our hard work and share it,” she said.
