As a Penn State Altoona Student Organization, we encourage you to participate in this year's homecoming parade. The parade will be along 11th Avenue between 12th Street and 16th Street (1/4 mile). Line-up will be on Green Ave and you should plan to line-up at 5 p.m. The parade will start at 6 p.m. The theme this year is "Celebrating 75 Years of Blue and White" and we are looking to the organizations to help us portray this! Build a float, ride in a convertible , or walk with a banner!

Floats are available on a first come first serve basis. The Office of Student Life will provide financial resources to organizations who choose to participate in building a float. All organizations who choose to build a float must provide a vehicle to pull the float (the vehicle will need a pin hitch).

If you have any questions, contact Dani Fry at
