NC State Homecoming Parade, Pep Rally Slated For Friday, Nov. 12

North Carolina State University will welcome back alumni and celebrate Homecoming with a parade on Hillsborough Street from 6 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 12, followed by a pep rally and concert on Harris Field from 7 to 11 p.m.

Media coverage of both events is invited. Chancellor Randy Woodson and his wife, Susan, are the parade’s grand marshals.

Raleigh Police Department and Campus Police will close the portion of Hillsborough Street affected by the parade route – between Dan Allen Drive and Pullen Road – beginning at about 5:45 p.m. The parade leaves the Sullivan Lot on campus and travels via Sullivan Drive, Dan Allen Drive, Hillsborough Street, Pullen Road, Dunn Avenue, Jeter Drive, Cates Avenue (which will be temporarily westbound only until the parade passes), Dan Allen Drive to Sullivan Drive and back to the Sullivan Lot.

The pep rally features a concert by the San Diego-based rock band Augustana.

Homecoming wraps up with NC State’s 2 p.m. football game against Wake Forest University on Saturday, Nov. 13, at Carter-Finley Stadium.
