It’s time to Unleash the Dragon! One of the traditional highlights of Homecoming Week, the annual the Homecoming Parade is scheduled for this Friday, Nov. 1, beginning at 12 PM and ending at 1 PM. The parade route will start at 14th Avenue South, then continue down 10th Avenue South to 20th Street South, where it will return along University Boulevard. There is no rain date for this year’s parade.
Sure to be vibrant and festive as in celebrations past, the parade boasts decorative floats and motorcades representative of the colorful mosaic of student organizations, campus departments, and surrounding organizations from the Birmingham Metro area. In addition, the Mid Alabama Corvette Club will seat President Watts, Provost Linda Lucas, the Vice Provosts Suzanne Austin and Harlan Sands, Mr. and Ms. UAB, and the Grand Marshals.
In the past, The Marching Blazers have been a staple in the parade, and will continue to drive the jubilant tempo of the parade. With tasty projectiles and representatives ranging from UHP to Theta Chi to BSAC, it has proven to be a fun-filled time for both students and faculty alike. A time where all can celebrate the Blazer Fire. To view some photo highlights of last year’s parade, you can visit UABKscope.com.
The event is sponsored and organized by the Student Activities Council.
