• Prompted by concerns about safety and other issues, the Borough of State College, State College Police Department and State College Area School District have decided to change the State High Homecoming Parade route for 2023.

    Rather than crossing Atherton Street to downtown as before, the Sept. 28, 2023 parade will take place in the Holmes-Foster Neighborhood. The parade will start and end at the high school, and afterward, there will be a pep rally at the South Track Complex. 

    The parade route will proceed as follows:

    • From the high school, the parade will head west on Westerly Parkway
    • Right on South Sparks Street
    • Left on West Fairmount Street
    • Left on Westerly Parkway
    • Right on Saxton Drive 
    • Left on South Sparks Street 
    • Right on Westerly Parkway to return to the high school

    We expect the parade to last approximately from 5:45 p.m. to 7 p.m. 

    If your organization would like to participate in the parade, please fill out this form. The deadline for parade applications is Sept. 22 at 4 p.m. For questions, please contact State High Assistant Principal Ryan Walsh at rjw12@scasd.org or 814-231-1111.
