Parade & Pep Rally

BGSU invites you to join in the celebration of Homecoming by participating in the Homecoming Parade. Participants are encouraged to incorporate the Parade theme “#FalconFlashbackFriday” into their float designs. This is truly a one-of-a-kind experience! In addition to the floats, the Parade will also include the faculty/staff queen and king, the undergraduate Homecoming Court, local dignitaries, special entries and members of the Bowling Green community. This parade will have it all.

The Homecoming Parade has been canceled due to bad weather.


Float building is a great experience for students and a great opportunity to fellowship with members from other student organizations through a float partnership. Register your 2016 Homecoming Parage Float by noon on Monday, September 12 here.


Special entries comprise all entries not in the float, local dignitary, or Homecoming Court categories. Examples include: local school boards, dance teams, and city offices. Entries should be creative and distinctive. Ingenuity is strongly encouraged.


The Pep Rally will occur in Falcon Tailgate Park on Saturday, October 1, two hours and forty-five minutes before kickoff.


Homecoming 2016 would not be complete without a royal court! One of the most time-honored traditions at Bowling Green State University is Homecoming royalty. As a member of the BGSU community, you may nominate students for the Court who are full-time students and who have achieved senior status for the Court. Nominees must be graduating in December 2016 or May or August 2017. Homecoming Court candidates should demonstrate commitment in and out of the classroom and show BGSU spirit. The Homecoming King and Queen, elected from this Court, will serve as ambassadors for the University.
