Minot State Homecoming 2023 parade set for Saturday

MINOT, N.D. – Minot State University is proud to announce details for Saturday’s Homecoming 2023 parade, 5K, and tailgate.

The annual Homecoming parade and 5K begins in downtown Minot, with the 5K runners leading the event at 10:30 a.m. and finishing in front the MSU Dome.

The parade stages east of Minot High School Central Campus at 3rd Street SE. The parade heads north on 2nd Street SE, then west on 3rd Avenue SE, before turning north on Main Street.

This year’s Grand Marshals are long-time University benefactors and friends, Clint Severson ’73 and Conni Ahart. Severson and Ahart donated milestone gifts to MSU to create (in 2010) and expand (in 2016) the Severson Entrepreneurship Academy. Both are active members of the Minot State Board of Regents.

Tailgating begins following the parade in Lot L east of the MSU Done and features free food from Sodexo while supplies last. Minot State football hosts Minnesota State-Mankato at Herb Parker Stadium at 2 p.m.
