The Ohio State Homecoming Parade, presented by The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, is one of Ohio State's biggest and longest running traditions. Student organization floats, colleges, departments, community organizations, and local celebrities are all a part of this great tradition.
Students, Alumni, OSU Family and Friends are invited to attend on Friday, October 5, 2012. Pre-Parade festivities begin at 5:30pm and the Parade starts at 6:30pm beginning at Ohio Stadium and ending at the Ohio Union.
Along the route we will have grandstand announcing and seating areas, food, and drinks. View the Parade route here: 2012 Parade Map.
