With lights flashing and sirens blaring, firetrucks carried Hamburg High School student-athletes through the borough Tuesday night in a show of school and community pride.
In anticipation of Hamburg's homecoming on Friday, students, parents and other district residents cheered members of the high school's sports teams.
"It is about firing up the community," said Brad Valentino, who coaches cheerleaders with his wife, Nicole. "It is a great way to get our community involved and excited for our sports, and it is a lead-up to the football game."
Friday and Saturday will mark a sports-filled homecoming for the school.
Hamburg will face Kutztown in football at 7 p.m. Friday. Then the two schools will continue their rivalry Saturday with field hockey at 10 a.m., girls soccer at 1 p.m. and boys soccer at 4 p.m.
All games will be played at Hamburg High School. Traveling from Hamburg Middle School, Tuesday's parade made its way along Fourth Street and then doubled back down Third Street.
"The ride is always well-received," Valentino said. "Parents and alumni always love to see the guys and girls that are on our teams, and the kids really like it, too.
"It's a great way to give them some recognition and build some hometown pride."
