TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The deadline to register for Indiana State University’s Blue and White Homecoming Parade is Sept. 27, Kevon Christian, Associate Director of Campus Life, said in a news release.
The parade, a tradition going back to 1919, starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 23. The Homecoming football game is at 1 p.m. against Youngstown State at Memorial Stadium.
Homecoming was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We want everyone to know that the Blue and White Homecoming Parade is back,” Christian said. “It will be a celebration of ISU and the Wabash Valley community, with the marching band, floats, cheerleaders, student organizations and candy for the kids. We hope local businesses and community organizations will join the celebration as participants in the parade. It’s a great opportunity to promote your business or organization — and have fun doing it.”
The parade route starts at 9th St. and Wabash. It goes west on Wabash to 5th St., then north on 5th St. to Chestnut St.
