On Saturday, Oct. 19, Homecoming week at Boise State will usher in the Nevada game with the annual Boise State Homecoming Parade. Starting at approximately 2:30, the precession will make it’s way down University Drive and end around 3:30 at Bronco Stadium.
This event is being put on by the Student Involvement and Leadership Center (SILC) on campus, including many different programs within Boise State. It’s a great way to get together and have some fun.
Thomas Camara, senior entrepreneurial management major and programming assistant for SILC, said, “People love going to the parades, and I think it’s a good way to end the week.”
Spectators can expect to see many college and high students involved in the parade, as well as a wide array of people from the Boise community at the parade, as it’s a
“It’s going to be a lot of different clubs and organizations. That includes Greek life and any organizations we have here that would like to. ASBSU is providing golf carts to some of the clubs and organizations that apply,” Camara said. “We’re going to have some high school cheer teams and bands. There’s other community members involved but I would say it’s mostly going to be made up of organizations.”
The parade has been a long running tradition, ending Homecoming week and BroncOlympics with a bang. People watching the parade will get to see fun floats and various clubs and organizations representing themselves.
“The funding for the event all comes out of different departments. Part of it comes out of us (SILC), part of it comes from ASBSU, it’s from multiple departments.” Camara said about how the parade is funded.
SILC wants to make sure this event is fun and exciting for students and community members to come watch and hopefully get involved.
“People love going to the parade, and I think it’s a good way to end the week,” Camara said. “With BroncOlympics, it’s little events to kind of get people excited for Homecoming, and that’s more of a school-based thing. With the parade you end with the community.”
