Homecoming Parade Information

The Homecoming Parade is fast becoming one of our best traditions.  There were over 40 student, departmental, and local entries in the Homecoming Parade last year, and we are looking to expand beyond that this year!  McKendree Registered Student Organizations and other groups enter floats, cars, bands, horses and other walking groups to show off their McKendree Spirit!

The parade line-up begins at 10am.  We will begin the parade at 11am.  Please note the new route, due to the Lebanon Fall Festival and Route 4 Construction!  Directions of the parade route are below.

PARADE ROUTE 2015:  The route will start on the corner of Alton Street then turn right onto Summerfield Street, then left onto Stanton Street, left onto College Road and finish on Alton Street.
