The parade will begin at 13th and Pennsylvania heading south on 13th. The parade will turn east College and then South on 14th. At 14th & Euclid, the parade will again head east to 16th where it will turn left to Broadway. The parade will cross Broadway and turn left on Euclid in front of the UMC. The Broadway crossing will be done in coordination with both the light at 16th and the turn signal onto Euclid. The CUPD has already agreed to synchronize those lights for that hour. They will also have police at that intersection.
Once on campus, floats will continue down Euclid to 18th. At 18th they will turn right onto 18th and then left on to Wardenburg Drive. Floats will be directed to the lots behind Wardenburg Health Center where they will be allowed to park until after the football game.
