WHITEFISH, Mont. — Homecoming activities are back on at Whitefish High School after they were previously cancelled due to cyber threats that targeted schools in Flathead County.

The cyber threats caused more two dozen public and private schools in the northwestern Montana county to close for three days earlier this month.

The Flathead Beacon reports (http://bit.ly/2xKWz90 ) the high school announced Tuesday that the festivities will be scheduled for Oct. 5-6.

The homecoming celebrations include a downtown parade, school dress up days, sporting events, a barbecue and dance.

Local businesses are invited to participate in a window decorating contest.
