Severe weather ended up cancelling MSU Homecoming’s favorite traditions last Friday: the parade.

It was scheduled to start at 6 p.m. and feature the Spartan Marching Band, this year’s grand marshal Susan Packard and, of course, Sparty.

MSU alumna Lisa Centner traveled with her husband from Chicago to see their daughter Adelle, who is a junior pyschology major.

The Centners were planning on watching the parade with her husband’s fraternity Theta Chi.

“They have the seats for us to sit out on the front lawn so we were going to go there,” said Centner. “Now we found out it was canceled a little earlier so now we’re just up and down Grand River doing some shopping.”

The East Lansing area got an inch of rain last Friday. The parade was not rescheduled.
