Delaware State University homecoming parade, community fair is Saturday

DOVER — After a COVID-19 hiatus in 2020, Delaware State University is resuming its traditional homecoming parade Saturday.

The parade will begin at 10 a.m. and will be followed by a community fair near the end of the route.

With DSU’s acquisition of the former Wesley College campus — now named DSU Downtown — the parade route has been changed to end there.

Consistent with previous years, the parade will be launched from the Legislative Mall area, exiting from Federal Street onto West Loockerman Street.

The procession will go along the usual route through downtown, westbound on West Loockerman Street.

In a change to the previous route, the parade will turn right at South Queen Street and proceed north for three blocks to Fulton Street, where it will turn right and go east for two blocks into the DSU Downtown campus, where it will end.

The parade can be observed on West Loockerman Street (from Federal to South Queen streets), along South and North Queen streets (from West Loockerman to Fulton streets) and on Fulton Street (from North Queen Street to Governors Boulevard).

In celebration of the establishment of DSU Downtown, the university will hold a community fair from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at and around the tennis courts on the corner of North New and Fulton streets.

The fair, which is free and open to the public, will include food, face painting, balloon art, a car show, voter registration and free COVID-19 vaccines.
