More than a century of Hawkeye pride will be celebrated with Homecoming festivities this coming weekend.

The Homecoming weekend, with the theme “Countless Hawkeyes, One Spirit,” will kick off with the Homecoming Parade, starting downtown at 5:45 pm. Crowning of the UI Homecoming King and Queen will follow on the Pentacrest.

Third Eye Blind, a ’90s rock band, will end the night in the IMU Main Ballroom, performing at 8 p.m. with indie-rock band Basic Vacation.

Saturday morning will feature the Homecoming football game against Michigan State, starting at 11 a.m.

The first UI Homecoming was started in 1912, 65 years after the university was established.
