Canapalooza is an exciting service opportunity during Homecoming to support the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. The LSU and Baton Rouge community will collect thousands of canned goods, which will be used to build a replica of Tiger Stadium and Mike the Tiger’s Habitat. In 2013, LSU donated 21,372 pounds of food as a result of CANapalooza collections.
CANapalooza is free and open to all LSU students, faulty, staff, alumni, and members of the Baton Rouge community.
The Homecoming parade is a wonderful opportunity for groups and individuals to show their Tiger pride. The parade winds through a 2.9 mile route through campus and lasts approximately 60 minutes. The Homecoming parade at 11 a.m. kicks off a series of Homecoming activities the day of the LSU vs. Ole Miss football game, October 25.
Floats or groups of registered student organizations will be judged and prizes will be awarded in the categories of creativity, LSU spirit, use of theme, quality of presentation, adherence to all rules, and overall presentation.
Participation in the Homecoming parade is free and open to all LSU students and groups in the Baton Rouge community, but advance registration is required. Registration forms are due Monday, October 6 in the Campus Life office, 350 LSU Student Union Building.
