TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — It’s a big weekend in Terre Haute as Indiana State University celebrates homecoming.

Students are beginning to prepare for the parade by decorating their floats to show their school spirit. The festivities kick off Saturday morning with the 99th annual Blue and White Parade, starting at 9 a.m. Followed by a tailgating event at the Memorial Stadium.

Senior at ISU Mason Haray said he’s excited to see it all come together.

“It is stressful and it’s hard work. But it’s very gratifying at the end of the day to kind of see your float go down Wabash and see all your hard work pay off,” Haray said.
