Howard University Homecoming Parade this Saturday

As a heads up, this is Howard University Homecoming Week. If you need to travel up and down Georgia Avenue, you can expect much heavier automobile and pedestrian traffic in the Georgia Avenue and Sherman Avenue corridors through this weekend.

Tomorrow is Howard’s homecoming parade. In addition to Georgia Avenue being closed during the parade,  the 70-bus will be detoured to Sherman Avenue during that time. Below are details about the parade and associated road closures.


This event is scheduled for Saturday, October 26, 2013. The staging area time will be at 7:00 am in front of the Johnson Administration Building (2400 6th Street, NW) on the Howard University campus.
