The parade steps off at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11.
The Homecoming Bonfire is a new tradition added to the Homecoming festivities. Scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11, in the Anderson Hall parking lot, this pep-rally-like atmoshpere has one goal: to show off Huskie Spirit and get everyone pumped up for the next day’s football game.

And, finally, it’s time for Huskie football and 11 a.m. tailgating – for example, NIU’s LGBTQA alumni are invited to tailgate just west of the north end of the stadium – as Heisman Trophy hopeful Jordan Lynch and Co. make only their second Brigham Field appearance of the season. Fans are urged to wear red for the game; the first 3,000 fans will receive red T-shirts. Kick-off versus the Akron Zips is scheduled for 4 p.m.
