The Homecoming Parade is one of Ball State's greatest traditions! Ball State campus organizations and Muncie community businesses and groups enter floats, cars, bands, horses, and even golf carts to show off their Cardinal Pride!
Parade Entry Form
GENERAL INFORMATION - ALL ENTRIES: Lineup will begin at 9:00 a.m. at Muncie Central High School (south parking lot). Please enter at the stop light in front of the school.
The parade will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. Please arrange to be dropped off at the parade site or ride on the float/vehicle you plan to drive in the parade. There will be no additional space for parking vehicles not used in the parade.
The parade theme is "Cardinal Strong." Judges will be looking for floats that reflect the theme. Your parade unit must clearly display the name of your business/organization.
There will be volunteers on site to direct you into the lot to your designated space. It is the responsibility of the participating organization to remove its entry from the parade route and campus immediately following the parade.
All parade forms and payment must be submitted by Thursday, September 25 to ensure all mailings can be completed in time. Sorry, no entries will be added after this date.
FLOAT ENTRIES: All campus floats must get a police escort to the lineup site. For an escort, contact the University Police Department at 285-1111.
CAR/WALKING ENTRIES: A separate entry form must be submitted for each car/walking unit entered in the parade.
GOLF CART ENTRIES:
