The carnival might be over, the hypnotist back at home and the ceramics packed away, but Homecoming has only just begun.

Bearkats willing to celebrate have yet to look forward to the parade, the game, tailgating and even a free movie.

On Thursday, Oct. 18, the annual Homecoming parade will continue the festivities. The parade kicks off at 6:30 p.m. Over forty organizations are participating, including distinguished alumni, the dance team, cheerleaders, various fraternities and sororities and various other groups. Homecoming candidates will also participate in the parade.

The parade will depart from Sam Houston Avenue and 19th Street and head toward Sam Houston Village. Aramark will provide meals to all meal plan holders in the parking lot of Subway during the event.

Huntsville’s Cinema 10

movie theater will host a special viewing of “Forty Days and Forty Nights” starring Josh Hartnett on Friday, Oct. 19 at 1 p.m. The line will be formed around noon outside the theater, and the first 170 participants will receive wristbands to be allowed into the theater. Students must present a student I.D. to participate.

As always, Student Activities is sponsoring a tailgating party outside the Bowers Stadium parking lot. The tailgate begins at noon Saturday and continues until the beginning of the game.

Planned activities include three different bands in rotating increments, face painting, food and various Homecoming giveaways.

Various SHSU organizations will also take place in the Homecoming tailgating event.

The Homecoming game against Northwestern State begins at 2 p.m. after tailgating.
