The DeMaria's and Everett Celebrate 2017 Homecoming Weekend

This past weekend, Mayor Carlo DeMaria and his family, along with hundreds of residents enjoyed a weekend full of events and an opening day win for the Crimson Tide Football Team.

This year’s Homecoming was one of the best in the City’s 125-year history. The City was full of people wearing crimson and gold.

The weekend officially kicked-off on Friday night with a performance by local musician John Kelleher, followed by a spectacular fireworks show at Glendale Park. This year the City added the fireworks show to officially start Homecoming weekend. The crowd was awed by thousands of fireworks that lit up the night and accompanied by an exciting musical accompaniment by the EHS band.

On Saturday morning, families and friends enjoyed a breakfast at the EHS cafeteria, while others participated in the annual 5k Homecoming Day race. Mayor DeMaria welcomed back the EHS Class of 1967, who were celebrating 50 years of graduating.

Following the breakfast and run, crowds filled the streets as more than 150 floats, groups, characters and national and local bands joined in the Homecoming celebration. Thousands of viewers covered the parade route, most dressed in their best Everett gear.

The weekend was capped off with a 38-7 Crimson Tide victory over rival Xaverian. Jake Willcox was named the Boston Herald’s Division 1 star of the week, as he completed 11-of-16 passes for 330 yards and two scores.

Mayor DeMaria said, “I hope that everyone had as great a time at the Homecoming events. The weather was perfect, and it was truly inspiring to see everyone turn out to celebrate our community. Thank you to all of the workers and volunteers who put so much effort into making the weekend so special, you should all be very proud. Roll Tide Roll!”
