Every year, there’s a bonfire the day before the big homecoming game. Cake and hot dogs are served at 6 p.m. at the stadium before everyone walks east of the stadium for the bonfire, which is at the guest parking lot. This year the cake was cut by homecoming queen Gracie Watkins.  The tradition serves to warm up the Panthers before the big game the next day. The band played great music to the crowd, and the fire warmed the hearts of the Panthers before they prepared themselves to go against Watson Chapel. When asked her impressions of the bonfire, Rylee Barnett said, “It was a great experience to go through with my friends.”
