Homecoming Parade Route

Tarleton State University

Tuesday, October 16, 2011

STEPHENVILLE, Texas—Alumni, friends and the community are invited to witness the annual Homecoming parade at Tarleton State University, which begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 20.

This year’s parade has attracted more than 50 entries, including floats, marching bands, mounted horseback riders and vintage vehicles that will wind around the campus.

The parade will begin at the Harbin Drive exit of the Memorial Stadium parking lot and follow a route turning left on Washington Street and continuing east past the front of the campus. The procession then turns left on McIlhaney Street, left again on Vanderbilt and ends at the Cain Street intersection.

The announcer’s stand will be located on McIlhaney Street in front of the Tarleton Alumni Association headquarters across from Heritage Park and the east rock gates.

Tarleton’s marching band, The Sound and The Fury, and the combined marching units from Morgan Mill and Three-Way schools will provide musical entertainment. Among the dignitaries riding in the parade will be honorees selected as distinguished guests by the Tarleton Alumni Association and members of the 2012 Homecoming court.

“This is one of the more special events at Homecoming each year because it provides the Tarleton family a chance to share with others in the community,” said Donna Strohmeyer, director of Student Activities at Tarleton and parade chair. “We are expecting some very nice weather and we hope there will be a good crowd gathered to watch the parade.”

Spectators are encouraged to view the parade anywhere along the route from Harbin Drive to Vanderbilt Street.
