The Homecoming Parade is an annual tradition that features the KSU Marching Owls leading a procession of floats, banners, decorated vehicles, the Homecoming Court, and in some years, a bath tub. This year, the parade will be Friday October 14th, starting at 4:30pm. Be sure to stick around for the Pep Rally immediately following the parade on the Campus Green, followed by the KSU Women’s Volleyball game against USC Upstate at the Convocation Center starting at 6:00pm.

The route for the 2016 Homecoming Parade will start from the West Lot off of Campus Loop Rd and head North to Prillaman Way, then down Owl Drive, ending at the Campus Green. See the complete route here: Parade Route 2016

For off-campus guests, the East Deck and Central Decks will be open starting at 4:00pm for parking for the parade. If you are an off-campus visitor, please avoid parking in any spaces that are marked “reserved 24 hours”. For a more detailed map of the campus and how to get to the parking decks, please visit:
