Hobo Day officially kicks off with the Hobo Day Parade. A series of floats built by students, community members, businesses, organizations, and clubs cruise through Brookings handing out candy and well wishes for a successful football game. The parade starts at 9:30 a.m. and begins on campus near the Coughlin Campanile, heading south on Medary Avenue, turning west on 6th Street and south on Main Avenue. View a map of the parade route. Locals tend to hand out hot chocolate, so keep an eye out! Be a part of town-and-gown tradition!
