SWOSU Parade Has New Starting Time


Area residents are reminded that this Saturday’s (September 24) homecoming parade at Southwestern Oklahoma State University has a new starting time.

The annual parade will begin at 2:30 p.m. in downtown Weatherford.

Brian Adler, director of public relations & marketing at SWOSU, said people are accustomed to a morning starting time, and SWOSU wants area residents to be aware that the starting time this year is 2:30 p.m.

Ten floats, 16 area marching bands and numerous other entries are scheduled to participate in the parade. The Shriners are also scheduled to bring the majority of their units from across Oklahoma to the SWOSU parade, which is an added attraction to this year’s parade.
