On Oct. 16, Millersville will host a Hometown Heroes parade to honor those who helped campus navigate Covid-19. Several student organizations will be represented in the parade. The event will begin on George Street at 8:30 a.m., no admission fee is required. 

Following the parade, a ‘Ville Block Party will be held in the Boyer Parking Lot and Brooks Field from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Millersville alumni, friends and current students are invited to enjoy food trucks, games, live band and the university’s first ever Swan Drop.
