Homecoming ticket sales for the second session of the Sept. 23 dance have been temporarily suspended after the Senior Class Board exhausted its supply of 600 paper tickets for the 8:30-10:30 p.m. session.

Additional second-session tickets will be available online via TicketLeap beginning Saturday at 9 a.m.

It is extremely “unlikely” that the second-session will sell out, according to Senior Class Board co-sponsor Mrs. Jennifer Kelly.

Tickets for the dance’s first session, from 6-8 p.m., are still available for students to purchase during lunch hours Thursday and Friday.

Online ticket sales for both dance sessions run through Wednesday, Sept. 20, and are available for $10.

There is no surcharge for online ticket purchases this year.

Kelly, in an interview with the Inkspot last year, said the dance’s two sessions are the result of the number of Community students while allowing them to bring guests from other schools.

“There is no way we can hold [all those] students in [the] gymnasium,” Kelly said.

The two-session format began after 2019’s homecoming dance when the over 1700 students in attendance, Kelly said, experienced issues with parking and delays entering the building as tickets were checked.

“It’s such a large group,” Kelly said, “the venues in [the] Bloomington Normal area cannot hold them either.”

Tickets will not be sold on the day of the dance.
