Homecoming Invite Letter 2017


 August 18, 2017


Dear ISU Homecoming Parade Enthusiast:


This year's ISU Homecoming theme is "Bengals for Life."  I am excited to invite our Bengal supporters to

join us for the ISU Homecoming Parade!  I know this year's parade will be fun and entertaining as you

help us cheer the Bengals on to victory over the Cal Poly Mustangs.  The ISU Homecoming Parade is on

Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. followed by the game at 2:30 p.m.



  •      Commercial/Business/Political Entry:       $75.00
  •      Non-Profit Organization Entry:                  $40.00 (Must provide 501(c)(3) document)


The entry deadline for the parade is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 15, 2017.  A late fee of $50.00 will

be assessed to all entries made after this date without exception.  Entry applications will NOT be

accepted after 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 22, 2017.


       General participants will enter at 2nd Ave. & Sutter and directed down 1st Ave.

       Two lines will be formed along 1st Ave. between the cross streets of Whitman &

       Sutter.  Lineup is on a first come first placed basis.  Entrance exceptions listed



Special entrances have been reserved for bands, cheer groups, drill teams, and dance groups.

These groups will enter the parade at a location assigned to them in the application follow-up letter.

Parade officials will space these groups so that spectators will be able to hear and see them

independently.  There is no room to reserve space for multiple groups to follow bands.  If a group wants

to follow a band, they must arrive with the band to ensure space.


The 2nd Ave. and Sutter entrance will open at 7:30 a.m.  Officials will direct participants to 1st Ave. where

the lineup will be formed.  The parade will begin at 9:30 a.m., from the corner of 1st Ave and Center St.

The parade will proceed east onto Center Street and continue until turning south onto 15th Ave.  Floats

will proceed past Holt Arena to the official Parade end at the corner of 15th/MLK Jr. Way.  Floats needing

to disband, may use the parking lot to the east of Reed Gym.  Participants may be picked up at the Reed

Gym lot.


I am looking forward to another incredible ISU Homecoming Parade, huge community turn out, and a

big Bengal victory!
