Note: To be confirmed to participate in the parade, describe in detail, with 100 words or less, what your entry will be and how it will relate to the Homecoming theme. Please write the description in the third-person as the announcer will read it, and be as detailed as possible. Failure to provide this will affect your confirmation for participation in the parade. The following is an example: "The Spartans Mango Club is a group of women who enjoy dancing Zumba. The group has been in existence since 2009 and their mission is to spread their love of Zumba to the Uniquely Spartan Nation. Their parade entry consists of members of the group collaborating to create a bold, vibrant dance throughout the parade."

Note: A limited number of flatbeds have been made available for student groups to request on a first come first served basis, and all flatbeds have been reserved at this time. To be added to a wait list for flatbed use, please contact Regina Cross at crossreg@msu.edu. Flatbeds will be available at the area of the stadium beginning Monday, October 16, 2017. For groups reserving flatbeds, the concourse will also be available for building of floats beginning Monday, October 16 and will continue each night until Thursday, October 19. A carpenter with a tool crib will be available to assist you in making your float. The day of the parade your float must be removed from the area no later than 3:00 p.m.
Note: This is helpful information when assigning positions in the parade so groups with music aren't placed near one another.
