October 19, 2010 · 7:58 AM
The annual Skyline High School homecoming parade is becoming one of the most popular community celebrations on the Plateau.
The parade will be held this Friday, Oct. 22, and the City of Sammamish is reminding residents that the northbound lane of SE 228th Avenue will be closed to traffic between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m.
To maintain two-way traffic on the city’s main arterial, however, the southbound lane of 228th Avenue will be split in half, allowing vehicles to travel in both directions.
During the parade, access from driveways and roads on the east side of 228th Avenue will be limited between SE 24th Street and SE 8th Street.
The parade, which starts at Discovery Elementary School, will begin its journey north to the Skyline High School campus beginning at 5 p.m.
This year’s parade will feature bands, cheerleaders and floats, youth football players and perhaps some other guests. Traffic control for the event will be provided by police and city staff.
At 7 p.m. the Skyline Spartans varsity football team will take on cross-town rivals, the Eastlake Wolves, at Spartan Stadium.
