Last week was a great week to wear red — Cardinal red, that is — as Greenwich High School celebrated its annual homecoming.

The festivities lasted through the week at GHS and culminated with the annual game as Greenwich took the field in front of a packed stadium of fans and alumni and won big. But the game was only part of a weeklong celebration of GHS spirit that included a “pink out” on Monday to show the school’s support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a day dedicated to fighting bullying on Wednesday and senior dress-up day on Thursday.

There was also the traditional bonfire at school and the crowning of the homecoming king and queen. Henry Ricciardi, a Post columnist whose Growing Up Greenwich column is in this week’s paper, was named the homecoming king, and Nicole Graham, whose courageous fight against leukemia has inspired the school, was the choice for homecoming queen.

Then came the Saturday parade, which departed from Julian Curtiss School and marched down Greenwich Avenue before heading to the school. The parade was a chance for GHS supporters to turn out and also for politicians eyeing the Nov. 5 election to press the flesh a little.

More coverage of Greenwich’s big 42-7 thumping of Fairfield Warde High School is available in the Post’s sports section and online at Greenwich-post.com. Additional pictures will be available online on Monday.
