Tallahassee, FL – Florida A&M University (FAMU) has a new route for its Homecoming 2007 parade. The parade is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday, November 3, at the intersection of Macomb and Georgia Streets. This is also the staging area.
The parade will travel south on Macomb to Tennessee Street; east on Tennessee to Monroe Street; and south on Monroe to Gaines Street. The parade will officially end at the corner of Monroe and Gaines Streets.
Bands, walking units, floats and other vehicles in the parade will continue east on Gaines Street towards the Department of Transportation parking lot to board their buses/vehicles and depart the area.
In the past, the parade traveled along Duval Street.
“Monroe Street will provide a much better viewing area for spectators,” said Captain Jamica L. Langley, co-chair of FAMU’s Homecoming Parade.
