The royalty assembly is set for 9:30 a.m. on Friday, and will be held in the new gym at PHS. Meanwhile, the pep rally is set for 1 p.m. and will be held in the middle gym at Piggott High.

At 2 p.m. the annual homecoming parade will get underway at the high school, and will make its way east to PES before turning west for the procession to the court square and back.

The annual chili cook-off competition is set for 5 p.m., and will be held in the tailgating area just north of Parker Field.

Friday evening around 6:20 p.m. the royalty will be presented during the pre-game ceremony at the football field. And, a ball drop is scheduled for 6:45 as the game ball will be delivered to the 50 yard line by the Survival Flight air ambulance helicopter based in Kennett.
