After the game, there will be another Fireworks Show at the old Patterson Mill site behind the High School. Once again, this will be sponsored by Michael Dunlow of Oscars Restaurant and Big Time Pawn.

The next day, the festivities will continue with an open house of the High School from 9 – 2. Around the courtyard will be food trucks and vendors. Some of those include jewelry and bead products, color street nails, cookies and treats, cups and decals, body and hair products, make-up, specialty coffee and snacks, Blanches BBQ sauce, DIRT food truck, Second St. Lunch, and more.

Also in the courtyard will be a tent with chairs so that you can mingle with fellow classmates and friends. There are at least 5 class reunions going on that weekend.

Under the tent will be representatives from various school organizations such as RR High School Alumni Association, Sports Club, Hall of Fame, and Band Boosters. You can join and discover their purpose.
