Please join us on Saturday, Oct. 19, at 9 a.m. as NCCU hosts this year’s Homecoming parade. Lineup for the parade will begin at Hillside High School on Fayetteville Street at 7:30 a.m.   All entries will be assigned a number and the lineup will be monitored by the Homecoming Parade Committee.

The registration fee for all campus groups is $25, and for off-campus groups it is $55. We are encouraging more floats this year and fewer cars and trucks. Please be advised that for every vehicle/unit in the parade a fee will be charged. Example: A fleet of antique cars will be $55 each, not $55 for the entire group. All cars/trucks must have signage on each side of the vehicle. For your convenience, you may contact the following company for magnetic signs:
