K-State alumni, friends and the Manhattan community gather for the highlight of Homecoming week! The Homecoming parade is held Friday night of Homecoming Week. Each year special K-Staters are selected to serve as grand marshalls. K-State
students show off their parade entries and Homecoming-themed floats throughout downtown Manhattan and Aggieville.
The 2013 grand marshals were Warren '65 and Mary Lynn Staley '65, accompanied by their grandchildren Ella and Bennett Cherveny.
Immediately following the parade, join K-Staters for the spirit-filled pep rally at the Larry Norvell Band Shell in City Park! Also, the KSU Pep Band, cheerleaders, Classy Cats and Willie will be on hand to rev the crowd for Saturday's football game against West Virginia.
The winners of each Homecoming event and the overall Homecoming winners for each category will only be announced at the pep rally.
