One of homecoming’s best loved events, the parade will begin off campus and lead back to the Hilltop. Entries will be staged at the JHS Bowl with the parade beginning at the corner of State and Church Streets. The parade route will travel east on State to the downtown square, around the southwest corner of the square, and exit on South Main traveling through the arch. The parade will turn west on College Avenue heading toward Illinois College, turn south on Park Street and end at the Homecoming Celebration Tent on campus.
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 Marketing and Communications/Campus Events, 232 Park Street, Jacksonville, Illinois, 62650 by Friday, September 11, or register online
