The LSU Championship Parade is set for Saturday at 11 AM at the school’s flagship Baton Rouge campus.

LSU Senior Associate Athletic Director Robert Munson says it’ll be a party and one last time to see all of the players and coaches together before many of them move on in their careers or graduate.

“It’s going to have some mardi gras floats and dignitaries and throws and all of that good stuff, so we are just going to have a good old fashion mardi gras celebration, but of course we are going to be celebrating a national championship,” says Munson.

The campus will open early to tailgating at 8 AM.

The parade starts at the School of Music and wraps up by heading down Victory Hill. Munson says to approach the parade like you would game day against a major opponent.

“If you want to tailgate, please feel free to do so along the parade route, and look we expect a pretty big crowd so if you want to get a spot where you can see the parade and then get into the PMAC, the earlier you can get here the better,” says Munson.

Rain is expected, but unless it is severe Munson does not expect it will stop the parade.

Once the parade wraps up the party moves inside the Maravich Assembly Center at 12 PM. Munson says the room will be packed with dignitaries, and award celebrations.

“All of the awards that the players have won throughout the season will be out there. We will have some players speaking, coaches speaking, and we are just going to celebrate all that happened this season,” says Munson.

LSU Championship gear will be available for purchase outside the PMAC.
