Merchants in Downtown Gadsden are showing their school spirit and getting in the fun of Gadsden City High School’s Homecoming Week. In what the community is calling the “Trim the Town Tour” – more than 20 downtown businesses have agreed to let teams from Gadsden’s elementary schools paint their windows with a homecoming theme. Another addition to the homecoming festivities is a community-wide pep rally to be held downtown on the steps of the Federal Building. The pep rally will follow the traditional homecoming parade down Broad Street. The parade starts at 1 o’clock and will begin near the Broad Street Bridge and end at the pep rally site. The Titans are hosting Hazel Green for the homecoming football game. Kickoff is set for 7 o’clock Friday night.
