Light Up the Night is one of the biggest pep rallies in the school year. A variety of clubs and organizations gather and parade around the football stadium with spirit for their clubs. During the night the football stadium is lit up with glow sticks, glitter, and banners.
Every year students from all organizations and clubs parade down the track, as they show off their love for their clubs. Members of the clubs will design banners to show off to the school. After all the clubs and organizations are done, dance performs a routine, as well as band. At the end of the night, the pep rally closes off with the stadium going pitch black, the glow sticks lighting up the night, and the band playing the Clemens Fight Song.
“My favorite part of light up the night is getting to perform with my teammates and showing off our routines,” Katie Binder (11) said.
Light Up the Night, has been one of many traditions at Clemens. This event used to have floats, and there would be a big parade around the Schertz area. The night used to end with a bonfire. The parade then downsized, to floats around the track. Shortly after the downsize, light up the night designed banners instead of flotas. Nowadays, Light Up the Night has completely transformed with glitter and glow sticks.
“The part I love about of light up the night was the floats, and I feel that's something Clemens is missing today. We use banners now, but it’s a way the community gets to see all that is offered here, not just athletics,” Mrs Frisbey said.
