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 spirit wear to parade their pride through campus.
The parade begins on the plaza at University Pavilion and proceeds down MainStreet to the Campus Recreation Center. This year's stride will be led by Grand Marshal, Sara Whitestone, UC Student and Founder of Sara Spins. There will be a free lunch for the entire UC community in the Campus Recreation Center Gymnasium immediately after the parade, featuring a performance by the UC Bearcats Band, awards, and Student Government Inauguration.
