Homecoming Parade Continues Downtown Tradition

As the revitalized tradition of hosting the Arkansas Tech Homecoming Parade in Downtown Russellville continues, student organizations are gearing up for a ride down Main Street.

The parade will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16. The route will begin across from the Russellville Chamber of Commerce at 708 West Main Street, travel east on Main Street, take a left turn on Commerce Street and proceed to the Russellville Depot on West C Street.

Monetary prizes will be awarded to the top floats presented by student groups. First place will be awarded $800, second will be awarded $500, and third place will be awarded $300.

Since the early 1990s, the Arkansas Tech Homecoming Parade has been held on campus, but returned to downtown last year in honor of the first centennial homecoming celebration.

There is still time for student groups to enter the parade. Download the PDF entry form here.
