Southern University's homecoming parade is set to roll on Nov. 4 after it was originally postponed from Oct. 7 due to Hurricane Nate weather advisories.
The parade will start at 7:45 a.m. and will take a new route through north Baton Rouge before a 4 p.m. kickoff against Prairie View A&M for the season home finale, according to Assistant Athletic Director for Media Relations Christopher Jones.
“As athletics director, I recognize what the homecoming parade means to the North Baton Rouge community and wanted to explore all options to make it happen,” said SU Athletic Director Roman Banks. “Through a collaborative effort between Athletics, Student Affairs, Campus Police and the Mayor’s office, we believe the new route will afford the Jaguar Nation with a great opportunity to express there love for Southern University.”
The parade will start on Badley Road near the Interstate I-110 overpass and move west towards Fairchild Street. It will then head east on Fairchild Street, turn right on Scenic Highway, veer right to travel north on Scotland Avenue and end at Scotlandville High School.
The senior class will be honored during the football game. It will also be the high school day game for the Baton Rouge campus.
