The City of Pearland plans to celebrate Pearland High School's 5A Division 1 football state title. A victory bash is now set for Saturday, January 8, at 4:30pm after students return from holiday break. Last weekend, the Oilers beat Euless Trinity 28-24 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington to win the championship. The Oilers were the underdogs as they faced the number one team in the nation.

The celebration starts at 4:30pm with a parade down Pearland Parkway, ending with a party at Pearland Stadium (The Rig). Everyone is invited.
