Our Parade Theme for 2019:  "Let the Good Times Roar!"  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 that we will be using our alternate route for 2019!  Directions of the parade route are below.

PARADE ROUTE 2019:  The route will start on the corner of College Road and Roger Street, back to the McKendree West Clubhouse Area.  Larger entries wil feed into the parade line-up from Roger Street and (if needed) Hunter Street.  We will proceed down College Road, then left onto Alton Street, right onto Summerfield Street, right onto Monroe Street, right onto Center Street, and finish on Alton Street.

Parade entry forms  are due to the Campus Activities Board Office, located in The Lair by Tuesday, October 1, 2019.   For additional information about each type of entry and the forms needed to sign-up, visit the links listed below.
