EDMOND — After three spirit-raising theme days, Edmond North High School students took to the high school halls Thursday dressed in Disney character’s attire before taking to the Edmond streets Thursday afternoon atop floats with Disney themes.

As the sun beat down on what should have been a cool, fall day, temperatures hovered around the 90s.

Monday was Stop Light Day when students wore green if they were available, yellow if they were talking but not committed and red if they were not available.

Tuesday old casts, black eyes and students on crutches were seen throughout the school on Fake an Injury Day.

Camel backs (water pouches worn on the back, camouflage clothing bird watchers complete with hats and binoculars were spotted Wednesday taking part in Outdoors Day.  

Disney Day punctuated the theme of the parade, “Disney” as Halloween costumes were pulled out of the attic and Christopher Robin, Pinnochio, pirates and mermaids were seen going from class to class.

Spirit Day, the day of the homecoming, students pulled out their North T-shirts, sweatshirts, game jerseys and spirit uniforms to help get the students excited for the homecoming game against Lawton Eisenhower.

Homecoming royalty included homecoming queen candidates and their escorts: Devon Wilson escorted by Jake Hobbs, Ashia Mills escorted by Luke Rossi, Chelsey Goldsmith escorted by Cameron Lewis, Ashley Merkley escorted by Scott Courtney and MacKynzi Franks escorted by Tyler Gatewood.

Homecoming kicks off at 6 p.m. Friday at Wantland Stadium.
