Homecoming parade, 1973

The 1973 Homecoming parade was scheduled on Saturday, Oct. 13 and began at Seagram Stadium. The event proceeded around the university and into Uptown Waterloo and floats from all four residences participated. Complications arose regarding the Staff Association and their reluctance to enter a float in the parade. Despite some difficulty, it was said to be the largest parade in the history of Homecoming at the time.

After a barbecue of “free Coke and hotdogs” students watched their Hawks win the Homecoming football game against the the University of Windsor Lancers 31-9.
