This year’s King and Queen will be crowned during halftime ceremonies of our football game with South Dakota State on Saturday, October 12. We hope you join us for the parade at 4:00 pm on Fifth Avenue and for the Homecoming game at 6:00 pm.
WE WANT YOUR STUDENT ORGANIZATION TO MAKE A FLOAT FOR THE HOMECOMING PARADE!
The Parade will take place at 4:00 pm on Saturday, October 12. The parade is a campus tradition, so your participation will play a vital role to the event’s success!
This year’s theme is All the Penguins and float concepts will be based on the values and causes that are important to the penguins in your student organization. Each group that registers a float entry in the parade will be given a six foot wooden cut out of a penguin to decorate for display during Homecoming Week. Additionally, this penguin can be used as a part of your float during the parade. We want to highlight what we do as YSU Penguins and what we are proud of as a community. To enter the parade please review our Parade Information Page and Entry Form.
