Natchitoches’ downtown riverbank was standing room only as hundreds of fired up Demon fans gathered for NSU’s traditional Homecoming Parade and pep rally Friday, October 22. The fun began on campus as cars with the members of the homecoming court were joined by colorful floats representing various student organizations. Led by the NSU Cheerleaders, Pom Line and Demon Dazzlers, the parade of cars and floats made its way down Second St. to the riverbank stage. Eager Demon fans from the community lined the streets along the parade route and were treated to candy and beads thrown from the cars and floats.
The parade ended at the downtown riverbank where the Homecoming Court was introduced. The NSU Spirit groups performed, and the Spirit of Northwestern gave a rousing rendition of the NSU fight song. The evening ended with a free concert.
The NSU Demons will face the Southeastern Louisiana University Lions Saturday, October 23 at 3:00. The Natchitoches Parish Journal extends its best wishes to our NSU Demons Saturday. NSU brings quality NCAA Division I sports as well as quality theater and musical performances, all either free or at a modest cost. Our community is immeasurably enriched by the energy and talents of some truly wonderful young men and women who make our community better while they are at NSU. Come on out and take advantage of a great opportunity – and enjoy some football. Fork ‘em Demons!
