The parade will begin at Jackson Towers and will end at CU’s campus. This year’s parade theme is “Let the good times ROAR.”

The floats will represent clubs and organizations on campus, Homecoming candidates, CU Tiger Marching Band, cheerleaders and Dr. Michael V. Carter and his wife, Debbie.

“The parade is a wonderful opportunity for alumni and friends of the university to reconnect and fellowship. We hope all come out and see a variety of floats, which represent our different clubs on campus,” Paula Smith, director of alumni relations, said.
