Homecoming Traditions Continue
Since Homecoming 2005 the Larrys have been performing at halftime with the Lariettes. This will be the 15th appearance of the famed Larrys! Who are these talented men you ask? Special men in the Lariette's life. It can be fathers, uncles, brothers, boyfriends, and family friends. This is just one of several traditions that the Coppell Lariettes look forward to each Homecoming. This tradition was started by Julie Stralow during her first season as director of the Lariettes. The first dance by the Larry's was to Wabash Cannonball.
The traditions start earlier during the week with the Homecoming Parade. Each year the Lariettes march in the parade that will take place this year on Wednesday, October 11, at 6:30 p.m. It will follow a route down Parkway Blvd. from Coppell Road to Coppell High School.
On Friday morning at the Homecoming Pep Rally, the Lariettes will perform their traditional high-kick routine to Wild, Wild West. This routine was first performed at the Homecoming Pep Rally in 2000 and continues to be Lariette favorite. The pep rally will be at Buddy Echols Field, visitor side, at 8:45 a.m. on Friday, October 13.
