Homecoming Parade

6 PM check-in at Krenzler Field; 6:30 PM Parade Begins

It may not be as flowery as the Rose Bowl, but our People-Powered Parade is just as much fun! Create your own sign or costume and be part of the parade. Feel free to bring friends and family and march with students or fellow alumni. All alumni are invited to march, or enjoy from the sidelines along the parade route. To march, check-in at 6 p.m. at Krenzler Field. Parade kicks off at 6:30 p.m. and ends at VikeFest on the front lawn of Mather Mansion. Sign up in advance to participate and receive a free T-shirt.


7 PM - 9 PM, Mather Mansion. Open to all

Once the parade ends, the party begins. Fair booths, food trucks, music, prizes, and games…what more could you ask for? Celebrate your Viking pride and classmates, family and friends immediately following the parade on the lawn of Mather Mansion. Plenty of food, children's activities, and an alumni beer garden to keep you engaged.
