Blackham Coliseum will close at 12AM every night and security will be posted to ensure all students safety. Float Building : Barns will be reserved for the purpose of storing, constructing, and decorating floats.Barns may be used between the hours of 9am and midnight each day. Friday Night Oct. 12-Saturday morning Oct. 13 Barns will close at midnight Friday night. Police will escort students out of the barn at midnight. Police will be stationed inside the barns for float security to eliminate students staying to “guard” their floats.The barns will re-open to students at 7:30am Saturday morning before parade line up at 8:30.

Parade rolls at 10:00 a.m., Johnston to St. Mary Blvd ending just past the Alumni Center. Float Design: Purpose of this event is to promote school spirit, therefore decorate your float according to the Homecoming 2018 theme - Back in the Mix, Back on the Bricks. Floats should all be UL, school-spirited, Ragin Cajun themed. We do not want to see any fairy princesses, Spongebob, Wizard of Oz, etc rolling down Johnston. Floats cannot be higher than 15 feet (from the ground to the highest point on the float including people) due to electrical lines and trees.Ex: if your float is 14 feet high, and a 5 foot person is standing on it, the overall height is now 19 feet. This would not be allowed. No hay or straw in or on floats (including as decoration)Have the name of your organization, “Homecoming 2018,” and “Back in the Mix, Back on the Bricks” somewhere on each side of the float. Only one float per organization Be sure the truck pulling the float can handle both the weight of the float and the riders. If appearing to be too heavily loaded while driving, safety inspector will have to remove the vehicle from the parade route. Float must be completely intact during inspection. No decorations, items, flags, etc. may be added after the safety inspector has checked your float.
