Bowling Green State University is gearing up for its homecoming celebration on Saturday.
"Don't Stop BGing" is this year's theme, and the event promises activities from Wednesday through Sunday, from class and Greek reunions to pep rallies and of course, the game.
The Falcon football team takes on the University of Toledo Rockets at noon Saturday in Doyt Perry Stadium, preceded by tailgating and the alumni Big Barbecue.
Homecoming will offer returning alumni and friends the opportunity to see some of the campus' new facilities, beginning with the volleyball game against Central Michigan at 7 p.m. Friday, in the Stroh Center. They can also meet new BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey at a reception that evening.
Visit for all homecoming details.
The big parade leads off the festivities, stepping off at 5 p.m. Friday on Wooster Street and culminating on the University Hall lawn with a pep rally, the crowning of the king and queen and performances by BGSU spirit groups.
In addition to watching Falcon athletes compete, participants can get some exercise themselves throughout the weekend, from free Brown and Orange Skates at the Ice Arena for people of all ages on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, to the annual Freddie and Frieda 5K Fun Run/Walk. The family event begins at 8 a.m. Saturday at the Student Recreation Center.
