With gleaming smiles as they hopped the night away, Gables’s annual Homecoming took place Saturday, Oct. 3 at 7 pm. The 50’s vibe could be felt throughout the Gables gym all night.
Celebrating Gables’ first homecoming in the gym since 2005, there were many services open for the people to enjoy. For starters, the food that was catered from one of our very own student’s parents; the food station offered hamburgers and corn dogs. In addition to that, there was Bindi gelato for the student body to relish. Also, for all the sugar eaters, cotton candy was available and popcorn for those with a salty tooth.
“The food was delicious and the gelato was the perfect dessert,” freshman Briana Borras said.
The variety of high spirited music that breadth throughout the gym ranged from Elvis Presley to Drake. The DJ played music that was followed by traditional 50’s dances. With poodle skirts spinning in circular motion, students were able to twirl to the rhythm of the music. However, the DJ made sure to include modern songs to bright up the room. There was not one dull moment according to senior Giselle Gonzalez.
“I didn’t expect for this homecoming to be such a great outcome. The gym was the ideal setting for the sock hop; words can’t begin to describe how much enjoyed myself. There was not a dull moment for me,” senior Giselle Gonzalez said.
Despite the nontraditional setting, the Gables staff was able to conduct a homecoming that will certainly be marked for the books. With a variety of food and jubilant ambiance, Gables danced their first ever sock hop away.
