Following the coronation ceremonies, the Gehlen Catholic Homecoming parade will traverse on Central Avenue.

Similar to the Le Mars Community High School Homecoming parade, Jungers says the parade will head north on Central Avenue.

Gehlen Catholic Homecoming festivities will culminate with the Friday night football game against Alta-Aurelia beginning at 7:00 p.m.  Jungers says prior to the kick-off, fans can enjoy a tailgate celebration.
