10:15 am • It’s Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown

It’s homecoming at Charlie Brown’s school, and Charlie Brown and Linus are among the escorts for the Homecoming Queen and her court. During the Homecoming Parade, Linus tells Charlie Brown that he will be the escort for the Queen, but Charlie Brown is shocked when he sees the Queen is none other than the Little Red-Haired Girl herself. He is even more shocked when Linus tells him about the Homecoming tradition—that he has to escort Heather and give her a kiss on the cheek before the first dance. This may be Charlie Brown’s chance to finally kiss the girl of his dreams.
