Join the Parade

NCCU welcomes everyone to join us on Saturday, Oct. 31, at 9 a.m. as the University hosts its annual Homecoming Parade. It promises to be an exciting display of show-stopping bands, local organizations and businesses, and NCCU groups

To Enter

We encourage you to be part of the fun by entering your group or organization in the parade. It is a great opportunity to show off your skills or advertise your goods and services. All vehicles/units must pay the non-refundable registration fee. The charge for NCCU Registered Student Organizations is $30, the charge for other on-campus groups is $45, and the charge for off-campus groups is $60. Please note each vehicle/unit in the parade will be charged. For example, a fleet of antique cars will be $60 each, not $60 for the entire group.
