The hippie clothes of the 1960s, the flapper dresses of the 1920s, clothes from the iconic 1950s and the loud styles of the 1980s. All of these were represented by Vinton County High School students and staff members Thursday afternoon, Oct. 5 as part of Decades Day. It was part of the weeklong Spirit Week celebration observed by the Vinton County Local Schools in conjunction with Homecoming week.

The high school was turned into a time machine as students expressed their creativity. One of the students who paid tribute to the 1950s was Rose Baste. She explained the dress she was wearing was her grandmother's prom dress.

Some of the students wore the 50s-style rolled-up jeans and leather jackets in the classic look from the Happy Days television show. One student who identified with the 1960s was Hayden Fetherolf, who wore a classic hippie outfit. Meanwhile, Zach Coleman dressed up as the famed 80s-decade detective, Austin Powers.

A highlight of the day was the Vinton County High School Homecoming Parade on Thursday night. Also, Maroon and White Day was observed on Friday with the annual Homecoming football game and dance occurring Friday and Saturday nights, respectively.
