Homecoming Parade To Affect Downtown Traffic Friday Night

Penn State’s annual Homecoming parade — the largest student-run Homecoming parade in the country — will be held Friday, November 10 and will affect traffic through campus and in downtown State College. The parade route will be closed from approximately 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Forming in the parking lots on Porter and Curtin Roads, the parade will travel the following route:

South on Bigler Road to Pollock Road
West on Pollock Road to Shortlidge Road
South on Shortlidge Road to College Avenue
West on College Avenue to Burrowes Road
North on Burrowes Road
Parade will disperse north of Pollock Road

Parking along College Avenue between Garner Street and Atherton Street will be closed beginning at 4 p.m. Parking along the rest parade route will be “restricted” according to a release from the State College Police Department. Vehicles parked along the route will be towed at the owner’s expense.

Those traveling in on Route 26 (East College Avenue) when the parade route is closed will be detoured onto University Drive. Drivers can expect delays on University Drive, College Avenue, and Park Avenue.
