(Arkansas Alumni)
Update: The UA homecoming parade and pep rally have been cancelled due to the threat of inclement weather.

It’s homecoming week at the University of Arkansas, and the annual parade and pep rally are planned on Friday, Nov. 4 on Dickson Street in advance of the Razorbacks’ matchup with Liberty on Saturday.

The theme of this year’s homecoming celebration is “100 Years of Tradition.”

The parade will begin at 6 p.m., and make its way up Dickson Street from the intersection of Highland Avenue (near Central United Methodist Church) to campus and end at the Chi Omega Greek Theatre.

Several student organizations, local businesses, churches, civic groups, as well as the the Homecoming court, Razorback Marching Band, Spirit Squads and old Tusk himself will participate in the parade this year.

After that, the pep rally is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at the Greek Theatre.

Other festivities include a class of 2020 Senior Walk dedication, an ASG Alumni Society Homecoming Mixer, an Arkansas Alumni Hog Wild Tailgate, and more.
