Cranberry and Oil City High School students danceed under the lights at Oil City’s football field on Saturday, Sept. 17, without masks this year.

For the first time since Covid, as events are getting back to normal, Homecoming returned to the format pre-2020. Oil City and Cranberry joined together for the festivities and the dance making the start of this year quite memorable.

On Thursday, Sept. 15, the Homecoming pep rally and parade, with a bonfire following, was held on West First Street in Oil City. 

On Friday, Sept. 16, the Cranberry queen and king were crowned prior to the football game at Oil City High School. During half-time, Oil City crowned its queen and king.
