DWU's homecoming theme announced, parade entries encouraged

MITCHELL — This year's Blue and White Days parade will be filled with togas, gladiators, laurel wreaths and chariots of fire.

Well, no actual fire, please.

Dakota Wesleyan University will celebrate its Blue and White Days on Sept. 18-20, with the annual parade at 10 a.m. Saturday. The theme this year is "The Rise of the Roaring Empire," and the DWU student life department is looking for willing participants to join in the fun.

To enter a float, vehicle or group to the Blue and White Days parade, please visit and click on the Blue & White Days banner. Registration links are listed within the schedule.

Interested parties may also contact Jeff Holstein, student activities coordinator, at, or 995-2943.

Parade entrants are encouraged to embrace the Roman theme — which can be anything from togas to chariots to Julius Caesar to Roman gods.
