The annual fall tradition of high school homecoming is fun for current and past students, and this week's #TBT Gallery will take a look back at images from homecoming in 1981.

The homecoming festivities at many schools last a full week filled with fun and games. The historically traditional activities include a homecoming parade, crowning of a homecoming court lead by the king and queen. Many homecoming weeks also feature a dance, giving students a chance to dress up and go out to dinner.

The crowning item of the homecoming week is the football game that hopefully ends with a win over a rival school.
