Oak Park High School celebrated Homecoming Sept. 16-17, 2016. While rain caused the parade to be canceled, spirits were not dampened at the all-school assembly. The weather was beautiful as festivities continued on Saturday for the football game at the high school. Senior Mahasin Tutu was named 2016 Homecoming Queen during halftime. See all photos!
