Homecoming is one of the most highly anticipated events in the Village of Garden City. As has been the case year-in and year-out, the Garden City Public School District pulled out all the stops, kicking off the festivities with a parade that stepped off in the main drag of Seventh Street. From here, this procession headed over to Garden City High School, where the Trojans would eventually fell the Elmont Spartans by a score of 27-0.

Providing the soundtrack for the day’s festivities was the Garden City High School Marching Band while the varsity and junior varsity cheerleading and kickline squads put on quite the choreographed spectacle that managed to span most of the gridiron’s midfield.
