Streets surrounding campus shut down on Oct. 21 for the annual Homecoming Parade, welcoming local school dancers and cheerleading teams, U of L organizations and Louisville non-profits. Other attendees included the Cardinal Marching Band and 2016 Homecoming Court.
The parade temporarily closed streets from Cardinal Boulevard to Eastern Parkway as floats and vintage cars passed by.Local businesses also came to the parade to promote their companies.
The float and vehicle route was roughly 0.8 miles total, and included a float design competition.
The theme of this year’s parade was “Raise some ‘L’.”
