UofL Homecoming Week gets Cardinal colorful with new Color Rally


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville 2015 Homecoming Week promises to be a colorful one.

    New this year, the Alumni Association’s annual homecoming celebration will feature a campus Color Rally with festivities, music and Cardinal colors at 9 a.m., Oct. 24. Participants will wind through a 2.7-mile route, getting doused with clouds of red, black and white, as they go. Early registration is encouraged.

    The Homecoming Week parade tradition will continue at UofL as well after making a return last year from a 15-year hiatus. The Oct. 23 parade, which starts at 6 p.m. at Cardinal Boulevard and Third Street near Cardinal Towne, will proceed down Third Street and end at Eastern Parkway. Parade goers will see the UofL Marching Band, Cardinal Bird mascots, Greek organization floats, spirit squads, homecoming court participants and more, all celebrating the official “Everyday is Game Day” theme. Organizations and businesses are encouraged to participate at no charge but must register by Oct. 9.

    Homecoming also coincides with UofL Sustainability Week this year, a week of events meant to raise awareness for responsible environmental, social and economic stewardship.

    Homecoming week officially kicks off Oct. 18. Other highlights include:
