Homecoming parade route change


UNIVERISTY OF ILLINOIS (WCIA) — It’s Homecoming on the university campus, and it means there will be a new route for Friday’s parade.

The parade will start at the corner of 4th Street and Kirby Avenue. It will return at Pennsylvania for a block, and then continue north on 6th Street to Gregory Drive. The new route is due to construction projects.

This year’s Grand Marshal is former UI President Stanley Ikenberry.
