NDSU Homecoming Parade Back in Downtown

Posted: Updated:

It has been over 30 years since the North Dakota State University homecoming parade marched through the streets of Downtown Fargo.

That all changes Friday though, as 125 floats and NDSU's Gold Star Marching Band will once again parade through downtown. The parade steps off at the intersection of Broadway and NP Avenue at 5:30 Friday night.

The parade will head north along Broadway to 4th Avenue North. Then go east to 4th Street North before turning south to 1st Avenue North. Where it will end at the Civic Center for a pep fest, scheduled to be held outside the Civic Center, located at 207 4th St. N., at 7 p.m. The event could be moved inside if weather becomes an issue.

Because of the downtown parade, several parking restrictions and road closures will be in place from 2:00 - 8:00 p.m. This includes NP Avenue from Roberts to 5th Street North, Broadway from Main to 4th Avenue North, along 4th Avenue from Broadway to 4th Street North and then 4th Street from 4th Avenue to 1st Avenue North.

At 3:30 p.m. NP Avenue will be closed from Roberts Street to 5th Street. Broadway will be closed from Main to NP Avenue. Broadway from 1st Avenue North to NP Avenue will be open to local business only, not through traffic.  

The parking lot by Old Broadway and Renaissance Hall will have a one-way lane out for people who need to leave; however, no new traffic will be allowed in.

At 4:30 p.m. the remaining barricades will be set up. The detour routes will be Roberts Street North and 2nd Street. Fifth Street will remain open for people needing to exit the parking lots in the downtown area. 

Free transportation by MATBUS will begin at 3:00 p.m. to bring people to and from downtown from the following locations: NDSU campus, Cash Wise, K-Mart and West Acres' Roger Maris Wing.
