CLEMSON — Clemson University’s annual First Friday Parade is set to kick off the football season at 6 p.m., Friday, Aug. 30. Thirteen sororities and more than 60 organizations will take part in the parade alongside President James F. Barker and other notable honorees.

The parade will begin near the President’s Home at the intersection of Cherry Road and S.C. 93. It will continue on S.C. 93 and conclude at its intersection with Williamson Road.

Immediately following the parade there will be a pep rally on Riggs Field where the Miss First Friday and the float competition winners will be announced. At the conclusion of the pep rally, the Clemson men’s soccer team will take on Mercer University.

The parade’s theme is “Spirit of the Southland,” which was inspired by the “Tiger Rag” fight song, and will be centered around Clemson’s spirit, tradition and culture. The grand marshal of the parade will be head baseball coach Jack Leggett.

Central Spirit is coordinating the First Friday Parade. The parade, pep rally and soccer game are free.
