Kids and parents alike will love the blue pancakes at the pancake breakfast. It's a great way to eat and snag a spot for the Homecoming Parade. Pancakes will be served at the bottom of the Maeser building stairs, south of the Creamery on 9th, at the botany pond, at the BYU track, and at Cougar Dental Center on the southeast corner of campus.
Want to get a workout in before the parade? Participate in the Cougar Run, a 5K that goes around the parade route, heralding the beginning of the Homecoming Parade. The race starts at the Robinson Track and Field Complex. Registration is $20.
Who doesn't love a good parade? The Homecoming Parade is a tradition that will delight the whole family. The parade route starts at the Marriott Center east parking lot, travels down 900 East, captures the south of campus along 800 North and passes Brick Oven and ends at the Smith Fieldhouse on 150 East. Get there early to grab a good spot!
