The MainStreet Stride is a campus tradition – a springtime foot parade of red and black. Student organizations, as well as students, faculty and staff representing offices across the university, dress up in their best (and often most creative) red-and-black getups to parade their pride through campus.
The parade begins on the plaza at University Pavilion, and proceeds down MainStreet to Campus Green. There will be a free picnic for the entire UC community in front of the Myers Alumni Center immediately after the parade, featuring a performance by the UC Bearcats Band, awards, and Student Government Inauguration.
