The Ohio State Homecoming Parade, presented by The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, is one of Ohio State's biggest and longest running traditions. Student organization floats, colleges, departments, community organizations, and local celebrities are all a part of this great tradition.
Students, Alumni, OSU Family and Friends are invited to attend on Friday, October 18, 2013. Pre-Parade festivities begin at 5:30pm and the Parade starts at 6:00pm beginning at Ohio Stadium and ending at the Ohio Union.
Along the route we will have grandstand announcing and seating areas, food, and drinks. View the Parade route here: Parade Map.
Immediately following the Parade will be the Homecoming Pep Rally, sponsored by the Ohio State University Alumni Association and the Student-Alumni Council, inside the Ohio Union.
