Homecoming week is in full swing and more excitement is in store.

The weekend festivities will kick off at 5 p.m. Friday with a pep rally downtown in Heritage Square.

On Saturday, the Flagstaff community and Lumberjacks of all ages are invited to spend the day on campus and enjoy events including the annual parade, tailgating and the NAU vs. Sacramento State football game.

Mountain Line will be offering fare-free bus service for all Saturday riders on Mountain Link (route 10) to help ease homecoming traffic. More information including the detoured route and how to receive real-time bus arrival information can be found online.

Visitors are encouraged to park in the San Francisco Street Parking Garage or lot P13. Roadways along the parade route will be inaccessible during the parade beginning at 11 a.m. View a full map of the Homecoming parade route online.
