Dress:
Parade dress code is your favorite IU spirit wear. Alumni who are not marching in the parade, and their guests, may gather to watch the parade at 17th Street and Woodlawn where there will be food trucks. Feel free to bring your own stadium chairs or blankets. Please note the entrance to the IUAA Tent is by IUAA invitation only.

Music:
The Alumni Band music is available for download HERE. Upon check-in, everyone will receive a flip folder
containing all the music.

Parking:
Please note the parking for Alumni Band Parade participants and RedSteppers will be in the grass lots behind the DeVault Center. With the parade staging, your best access will be to take Indiana Avenue south to 13th Street. Turn left and you will come to a number of parking options along Forrest Avenue. RedSteppers would do well to arrive early to avoid any traffic mishaps.

More info:
The full parade route begins at Woodlawn and 17th Street, in front of Memorial Stadium, and continues south on Woodlawn Avenue. The parade turns left at 13th Street, left on Fee, and left again on 17th Street to end where we started. The Marching Hundred Alumni Band will play on the steps of Marching Hundred Hall from 5:00 to 5:30 pm, providing entertainment to the IUAA VIP Tent before the parade begins. Once the parade begins the Alumni Band will meld into the Marching Hundred, which will be the last entry in the parade.
