Parade Information

 

The Homecoming Parade is an important part of the Homecoming tradition. Parade entries may vary from novelty entries, decorated cars, trucks and small to full-size floats. Each is a special part of the parade and adds character and excitement to the festivities. Line-up begins at 2pm in SPSU P35 parking lot on Friday, February 1, 2013. Please give attached parade map to the drivers of your vehicles. Please do not be late! All Parade entries will be judged at line-up, prior to the parade. You may enter in one or more categories but you will only be judged for one.

 

NOVELTY ENTRY:

Novelty or Walking entries are really fun and add a special touch to the parade. All groups are eligible to participate in this category and are urged to be as creative as possible in depicting the Homecoming theme. The novelty entries will be judged on representation of the theme, creativity, originality, and spirit.

Prizes: 1st place: 85 points 2nd Place: 75 points 3rd Place: 65 points

 

DECORATED CAR OR TRUCK ENTRY:

Got a fancy car or jalopy of a truck? Whichever it may be, decorate your vehicle for Homecoming 2013. Cars and Trucks are especially decorative to the Homecoming Parade and are needed to make the parade a success. Car and truck entries will be judged on representation of the theme, originality, spirit, and artistic talent.

Prizes: 1st place: 85 points 2nd Place: 75 points 3rd Place: 65 points

 

SMALL AND LARGE FLOATS ENTRY:

No parade is complete without floats. It may seem like the most work, but it’s definitely fun to do. Get your group together and be creative and original. The float entries will be judged on representation of the theme, originality, movable parts and artistic talent. An entire group will not be able to walk with the float in the parade but a car with group members to monitor the float may follow behind the float. If necessary, a few of the organization's members may also be allowed to walk along the sides of the float to monitor it.

Prizes: 1st place: 85 points 2nd Place: 75 points 3rd Place: 65 points

 

*Remember: All parade entries will be judged at line-up, prior to the parade.
