Homecoming Parade

Kent State University and the City of Kent invite you/your organization to participate in the 2018 Homecoming Parade on Saturday, October 6.

Each entrant is responsible for securing their own parade mobility, whether by foot or vehicle. Signs and/or banners are also the responsibility of the entrant. Parade entries are welcome to pass out your organization’s promotional items and/or candy to the parade spectators, both children and adults.  All entries should be in good taste and not make any reference to alcohol, drugs or other distasteful or offensive behaviors.

The parade will step-off at 10:00 a.m. from the Kent State University campus and will proceed west on Main Street. The parade will conclude at approximately 11:30 a.m. at the intersection of Main Street and Franklin Avenue in downtown Kent, Ohio.

If you have specific questions about the parade, please contact Rebecca Blaha in the Center for Student Involvement at 330-672-5288.
