Above, students from Hermosa Elementary School get on the bus bound for a Bulldog victory during the 2018 Artesia High School Homecoming parade Friday along Main Street. The lengthy and orange-bedecked parade featured a wide variety of floats and entries lovingly prepared by not only local schools but businesses and community organizations, as well. The Bulldogs capped the evening off with a decisive 56-12 win over Deming at Bulldog Bowl. See the cover of this week’s Community Living section for more photos.
