The 90-minute parades begins at 4:30 p.m. at the Howes and Oak intersection, and then follows the path of Howes, around the Oval, across the plaza on campus, and concludes on Meridian Ave. on campus, according to Today@ Colorado State University.

The streets will open again when the parade ends at 6 p.m. Friday evening.
