Last year's Maricopa High School band all geared up for Homecoming. This year's Homecoming Week is Sept. 26-Oct. 1.

RamFest 2015 brought members of the community together to honor Maricopa High School’s past and present with a festival, alumni football game and bonfire.

The Homecoming Committee worked tirelessly to bring Ram Fest 2015 to fruition, and after four hours of celebrating the last 60 years of Ram pride, the event would be considered a success.

Hundreds of students, parents and community members participated. The MHS band played throughout the festival, and attendees were able to enjoy food, drinks and games provided by various vendors.

“It’s just really fun to see the community come together and celebrate Maricopa High’s 60th year anniversary,” MHS Freshman Class President Alayja Reynolds said. “It’s really cool to see all the community come out and support our Rams.”

Once the fields cleared from the youth soccer games, MHS alumni took on the city of Maricopa staff in a flag football. The alumni dominated the city staff on both sides of the ball.

“We’re having a really good time,” MHS Student Body President Cierra Reynolds said.

As hundreds of students and community members made their way over to the bonfire, members of the MHS football team hyped up the crowd for their game Friday night against Vista Grande High School. The Maricopa Fire Department lit the stack of pallets, and flames soon shot into the air.

The next event for MHS Homecoming Week will be a “Staff vs. Students Mud Run” Thursday night. The week will come to a close the following night when the Maricopa Rams host the Vista Grande Spartans at Rams Field for the team’s Homecoming Game.
