NOKOMIS (Heartland Newsfeed) — Planning continues for the 2020 Nokomis Homecoming celebration, as the Nokomis Homecoming Association held a virtual meeting on Monday, April 6.

The tentative dates for the event are July 10-12. The parade will take place on Saturday, July 11, kicking off at 6 p.m.

Depending on how conditions are surrounding the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, those dates could change as a result. As of publication, there are eight active coronavirus cases with one death.

A poll to determine the parade theme is underway, with the end of polling set for 4 p.m. on April 27. The two current choices are “What’s your superpower?” and “Family Game Night”. A link to the poll is available on the Nokomis Homecoming Association Facebook page, also included below.

With 135 votes so far, “Family Game Night” has a clear lead.

The Association hopes to once again provide a fireworks display on Sunday evening, July 12 to close out the event. Currently, donations are needed at this time. Additionally, First National Bank is the depository for monetary donations to the fireworks fund. The bank’s address is 122 W. State St.

Inquiries about the Homecoming Association or the upcoming Homecoming can address their questions to their Facebook page.
