Needles, CA: Needles High School Homecoming Week 2018: Mustang Drive, Community Pep Rally and Bonfire brought light rain and people together in Needles Mustang Blue pride, spirit and community.
A great afternoon and evening of Needles Mustang pride and spirit was enjoyed by many people during the Mustang Drive, Community Pep Rally and Bonfire, as part of Needles High School’s Homecoming Week 2018, held on Thursday, October 11th, 2018 in Needles, California.
ZachNews Photojournalist Zachary A. Lopez was there, broadcasting live on Facebook on all of the Needles Mustang Blue pride, spirit and community togetherness that occurred.
The afternoon of fun began near the Needles Chamber of Commerce Office in Downtown Needles, California where the Mustang Drive began slowly and safely driving along D Street, Lillyhill Drive, Bailey Avenue and Washington Street to get the community in the Needles Mustang Blue pride and spirit.
Crews from the City of Needles Public Works department lead the way, clearing a path for the Mustang Drive to arrive at their ending destination at Needles High School in Needles, California where a Community Pep Rally was being held.
Community Pep Rally began bringing current students along with their parents, former classmates, school officials and the community together to show their Needles Mustang Blue pride and spirit.
During the Community Pep Rally, the crowd showed their support for their Needles Mustang sports and cheer team members, listened to a guest speaker and played games that had everybody having fun.
After the Community Pep Rally, everybody gathered behind Needles High School where a Bonfire was held.
Despite a light rain falling, the Needles Mustang Blue pride and spirit was strong enough to continue the Bonfire, burning bright as the flames grow burning a mountain wooden pallets that could be seen for miles into Mohave Valley, Arizona.
All of the events were enjoyed by everybody in attendance as well as the many people watching on ZachNews, including from ZachNews fans in Idaho and Utah, the Needles Mustang Blue pride and spirit was widely enjoyed… until the camera shut off because the heat of the bonfire was very hot overheating the camera ending the live broadcast.
