Urbana – Urbana High School will celebrate homecoming during the week of September 25 through September 30, with their traditional Homecoming Parade on Friday, September 29. In a change from previous years, the Homecoming Varsity football game vs. Champaign Central will be held on Saturday, September 30 at 12 noon.
Pep Rally and Homecoming Parade
On Friday, September 29, the UHS Homecoming Pep Rally will be in the Oscar Adams Gym at 11:30 a.m. The Parade will start shortly after, at 12:30 p.m. The time is a change from previous years. The parade will include the Homecoming King and Queen and their Court, UHS Marching Band, floats created by student committees representing student groups and grade levels, student athletic teams, and a variety of special guests and USD #116 administrators. The Court will also be introduced during the UHS Varsity Football game the next day. Because the varsity football game will be held on Saturday, there will be no Tailgreat event this year.
The parade route will begin at the high school on Race Street at Iowa. The parade will continue north on Race Street to Main Street, east on Main Street to Vine Street, south on Vine Street to Washington Street, west on Washington Street to Broadway Avenue and finish in the high school parking lot.
Race Street will be closed to thru traffic between Iowa Street and Indiana Avenue beginning at 11:30 a.m. through the start of the parade. Once the parade starts, traffic along the parade route will only be obstructed for the time it takes for the parade to clear the area (approximately 15 minutes) on each leg of the parade.
While we encourage supporters to watch the parade and cheer on our Tigers, drivers in the downtown area and around the high school may want to avoid this area during the parade times. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Everyone at Urbana High School and Urbana School District #116 appreciates the support the community shows to our students.
