McNeese Accepting Homecoming Parade Entries

McNeese State University is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year and the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales will make a special appearance in the 2014 McNeese Homecoming Parade as part of the celebration.

The parade rolls down Ryan Street at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 16, and the community is invited to participate in this annual event.

Oct. 10 is the deadline for community entries and the fee is $50 per unit. This year's theme is "Cowboys Forever." The Cowboys are playing the Wildcats of Abilene Christian for homecoming at 6 p.m. Oct. 18 in Cowboy Stadium.
           
Line-up for the parade begins at 3:30 p.m. in freshman parking Lot A near Cowboy Stadium. The parade will start at the intersection of Ryan and East LaGrange streets, turn south on Ryan and travel to McNeese Street, and turn east on McNeese and travel to Cowboy Stadium, where it will disband for the homecoming pep rally and fireworks display.
