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 theme “#FalconFlashbackFriday” in their float designs. This is truly a one-of-a-kind experience! In addition to the floats, the parade will also include royalty nominees, local dignitaries, special entries and members of the Bowling Green community. This parade will have it all. The parade starts at 5:30, don't miss it!


Float building is a great experience for organizations and a great opportunity to fellowship with another organization through a float partnership. The Homecoming Student Steering Committee will soon be accepting theme registrations for all classes of floats.


Special entries comprise all entries not in the float, local dignitary, or royalty nominee 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 have achieved senior status. The nominees must be graduating in the winter 2015 or spring or summer 2016. Homecoming Court candidates should demonstrate commitment in and out of the classroom and show BGSU spirit. The Homecoming King and Queen, elected rom this Court, will serve as ambassadors for the University.
