HOCO with Friends/Date

Students don’t have to go to homecoming with a date, it is just all about having fun and spending time with people you like. Get with a group of friends could all go to dinner before, then head to homecoming and hangout. Plan to take pictures with your group so you can remember this special day. There are a lot of great restaurants in Flower Mound to eat at, just if it’s a big group, make sure to reserve a big table in advance. Some suggestions for dinner include Red Robin, Texas RoadHouse, Christina’s, Urbano, and Chili's. If you’d prefer something fast , you could just go to something more casual like Whataburger, Chick-fil-A, or Sonic.

Fashion Tips

Homecoming began at colleges as a celebration for the first football game of the season, where alumni would come back to visit their former campuses.


Now homecoming is something traditional and you enjoy your time during the dance. In the 80s, the dresses were more dramatic than the dresses now. Dancing in heels could be uncomfortable so wearing shoes with a thicker heel might be more comfortable. The place will be hot due to the amount of people that will be there so be sure to wear a light dress. Boys, you don’t have to wear a full on suit! A dress shirt with dress pants is okay for the night.

Other Homecoming Traditions

Did you know that there are plenty of traditions during homecoming? So many in fact that you could try some out and see what you like.


Chalk Drawing Contest:

  • Have a sidewalk chalk art competition! Just get some friends and some colorful chalk and see who can make the best art.

Have a BBQ/Pool Party:

  • This one is super easy, you can choose to do this anytime during the week or weekend of homecoming. Just get some food and invite your friends to your pool, or invite yourself to your friend’s pool.

Show Your Spirit:

  • Participate in spirit week and show your spirit at all the games! Some fun ideas are to do some fun face paint for the games or come up with fun fight songs with your friends you guys can chant at the football games

Have a bonfire:

  • Obviously do this with adult supervision, but this is something that you can do with friends. You could have s’mores or even hot cocoa, coffee, tea, or whatever you are into.


Just take it from FM9 Student, Zaria Waseem, “ It would be such a waste to sit out… After all, homecoming is only one time a year.”
