2014 Homecoming Parade/Activity Band Application

Homecoming has always been, and will continue to be, a standing tradition here at UCO. The Homecoming Activities Board strengthens bonds with the Alumni Office and Athletic Department, works closely with our philanthropy recipients and created new and exciting events for all of our participants. This is a time for celebration, as we have now seen 120 amazing years of this wonderful place. 

University of Central Oklahoma hosts a Homecoming parade at 10 a.m. on Saturday November, 1, 2014 at 10am. The University of Central Oklahoma invites bands to participate in this parade and awards first and second place trophies in five classes of competition as well as offering an open class for bands not interested in competing.

First place winners in each class will receive a $150 award and second place will receive a $100 award. In addition, each band participating in the parade will receive a donation of $300 to help defray expenses. Classifications are as follows:
