Join us for the 2021 Two Times the Fun Homecoming Parade!

The parade will be held in downtown Canton on Saturday, September 25 and is slated to begin at 9:30 a.m. For those individuals and businesses who would like to submit an entry for the parade, please click the link below and fill out the registration form before 5 p.m. on September 10 to ensure we are able to send all necessary details to you regarding parade lineup and preparation well in advance.   

The Class of 1983 won the Battle of the Grad Years: Alumni Giving Challenge on the Day of Giving and will have access to an exclusive VIP viewing area at the parade. More details will be emailed to those alumni from the Class of 1983 who RSVP for Homecoming as we get closer to the event.

Click here to submit an entry for the parade.

Before registering for entry into the parade, please familiarize yourself with the rules:

  • Riding on top or outside of vehicles without safety belts, truck beds or rails is prohibited. Do not cling to or ride on the outside of vehicles. Trailers of semi-trucks are okay to sit on.
  • All drivers of floats or vehicles shall possess a valid driver's license. The vehicle used in the parade to transport individuals must be insured.
  • Please, no throwing candy, confetti or other items from floats. This is very dangerous. We do, however, encourage walking along the sides of floats and handing out candy and toys! THIS RULE WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED!
  • Participants riding any type of motorcycle, 4-wheeler or bike are required to wear the proper helmets once they leave the parade route. Helmets are not required along our route; however, you are required to wear them once you have completed the parade.
  • No discharging of firearms allowed.
  • Alcoholic beverages are forbidden on any float or vehicle or on the person of any participant. Entries will be taken out of the lineup during the parade if there is obvious disregard for this rule, and invitation may be withheld in the following year.

Disregard of the rules will be cause for ejection from the parade formation and possible denial of future parade participation.
