Best Bets: UI Homecoming Parade

Friday, Oct. 19


The University of Iowa Hawkeyes aren’t the only ones on their toes for this weekend’s Homecoming. Hancher is participating in Friday’s parade, featuring costumes from American Ballet Theatre’s “Whipped Cream.” The lavish production won’t come to the Hancher stage until April 6, but these confections will make their Iowa City debut on Hancher’s float. The parade also features guests of honor, student and community organizations, bands, the public library’s Bookmobile and Book Cart Drill Team, and various UI departments parading their school spirit before 15,000 spectators. The finale kicks off at 11 a.m. Saturday when the Hawkeyes face Maryland in Kinnick Stadium.
