Homecoming Weekend kicks off today at Briar Woods High School. The Homecoming parade starts at 6:00 p.m. at Legacy Elementary, following a route north on Ashton Woods, continuing onto Highcrest Circle, east on Regal Wood Dr., and south on Legacy Park Dr. back to the starting point. These streets will be closed to traffic. If you're hungry before or after the parade, the BWHS Music Boosters are throwing a BBQ from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. in the BWHS Cafeteria. Admission is $7 at the door, and includes a BBQ sandwich, two sides, and a drink. After you stuff your face, go watch the football game, which starts at 7:30. The Falcons (4-1) take on the winless Loudoun County High School. Final Homecoming note: the dance is Saturday night from 8:00 - 11:30 p.m. Residents who face Legacy Park should be on the lookout for, um, "loitering." Time to dig out your night-vision goggles!

There's other stuff going on this weekend in the 'hood. The Animal Medical Centers of Loudoun (the newly opened vet office on the west side of the BTC) is having an open house on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. You can meet the doctors, tour the clinic, and doggie visitors can try "Bobbing for Bones." Professional pet photographer Candid Paws will be on hand; you can get two 4x6 prints for $5. There'll be a "Best Costume" contest; the winner's photo will be displayed in the lobby.

Finally, don't forget about the political events going on this weekend. Maybe I'll see some of you there!
