Join the Penn State Alumni Association’s Lion Ambassadors in one of Penn State’s longest standing homecoming traditions. Members from Penn State’s ROTC program — including Army, Navy, and Air Force — stand guard and protect the symbol of our best while alumni, friends, and students enjoy free popcorn, cotton candy, games, live entertainment, and giveaways. Take advantage of opportunities for photos with the Nittany Lion, the Blue Band Drum Line, and others. The event is estimated to begin at approximately 7:30 p.m., but it actually begins when the first participants in the parade reach Rec Hall. No registration is required, and you can come and go as you please.
