SLIDESHOW | Here comes South Whidbey's homecoming

Holy rockabilly! Homecoming Week hit South Whidbey High School on Monday, complete with costume and custom.

Each day leading to Blue-and-White Friday (the day of the homecoming football game against Sultan) had its own dress-up theme.

On Monday, students hopped in the DeLorean and visited the sock hop fifties for Grease Lightning inspiration. Leather jackets, hot pink pullovers, puffy skirts and neck bandanas were en vogue in the SWHS cafeteria.

The week will be capped by the homecoming court announcement during halftime Friday and the Happiest Place on Earth homecoming dance Saturday.

Other theme days included Superhero, class choice of kindergarten for freshmen, Steve Urkel (sophomores), pirate (juniors) or toga (seniors) and grandparents.
