This year Campbellsville University will have her Homecoming Parade Saturday, Oct. 6 at 4 p.m. The parade is later this year due to the late start of the football game at 7:01 p.m.

The parade will begin in front of Jackson Towers and progress through Main Street before taking a right on 3183, continuing until the intersection of University Drive where they will take a left and a right on North Hoskins, before ending in front of the university’s president’s house.
