Mary Carlton Landsberg, Pike County Chamber of Commerce, said the theme of this year’s Troy University Homecoming Parade is “T for Troy”. The parade will start at 10 a.m. and will follow a downtown route.

“We are so excited that Mike Amos will be this year’s grand marshal,” Landsberg said.

Lineup will begin at 8 a.m. on 3 Three Notch Street. Floats and vehicles must be in place by 8:30 a.m. and walking units by 9 a.m.

All entries must have a parade theme or Troy University signage.

Floats must be no longer than 14 feet.

For the safety of those in the parade and those who watch, there will be no horses, no thrown and handed out items from the entries, no profanity and vulgar music, no racing or high-speed performances and no riding on the tops of vehicles

Landsberg said units in violation of the rules will be subject to removal.

There will be no entry fee, however, the last date to register to be in the parade is October 2.
