Entry Deadline Approaches for the “Battle of the Decades” in the 2012 Kent State Homecoming Parade

Posted Sep. 4, 2012

Kent State University and the city of Kent invite businesses, organizations and individuals to participate in Kent State University’s 2012 Homecoming Parade. The registration deadline for entries is Friday, Oct. 5.
 
The parade is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 20. This year’s theme is “Battle of the Decades.” Parade participants are encouraged to base their creative entries on any one of 10 decades in Kent State’s history.
 
Stepping off at 10 a.m. from Midway Drive on campus, the parade will proceed west on Main Street, arriving at its conclusion at the intersection of Main Street and Franklin Avenue in downtown Kent at approximately 11:30 a.m.
 
Entrants are reminded that they are responsible for securing their own parade mobility, whether on foot or by vehicle. Signs and banners are also the responsibility of the entrant. Parade entrants are welcome to pass out promotional items and candy to all parade spectators. All entries should be in good taste and should not make any reference to alcohol, drugs or other distasteful or offensive behaviors.
 
All entries must be postmarked by Oct. 5 for consideration of acceptance into the Homecoming Parade. Each entry will be confirmed upon receipt of the registration form. Parade registration, staging and disbanding location, parade map and additional information will be sent to the entry’s contact person by Oct. 15.
