SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ – The Vikings football team, South Brunswick High School students and parents proved this week that it takes more than two days of rain, wind and cool temperatures to stop its Homecoming week.

As nor’easter conditions flooded the region Thursday and Friday with rain, wind and much cooler temperatures, the Vikings found a way to keep its annual Homecoming festivities and the big game against the Sayreville Bombers on track.

Both Thursday night’s bonfire and pep rally and Friday night’s halftime parade and the crowning of the Homecoming King and Queen were each moved inside of the high school gym.
