One of homecoming's best loved events will experience a makeover this year with a new parade route. Entries will be staged near the Jacksonville High School Bowl, and the route will begin at the intersection of West State and Church Streets. The new route will travel east on State to the downtown square, travel around the southwest corner of the square and exit on South Main Street traveling through the arch. The parade will then turn west on College Avenue heading toward Illinois College, turn south on Park Street and end at the Homecoming Celebration Tent on the corner of Edgehill Road and Park Street.
Community members who would like to place an entry in the parade are urged to download a registration form
and return it to the Office of Development and Alumni Relations at 1101 West College Avenue, Jacksonville, Illinois, 62650 by Friday, September 19, or register online
