The parade and pep rally will still take place as scheduled.
The Texas Tech University homecoming bonfire has been canceled due to inclement weather conditions and the safety of students, faculty, staff and the Texas Tech community. The parade and pep rally will still take place as scheduled.
"We want to keep our students and the Texas Tech community safe," said Jon Mark Bernal, associate director of student activities. "Due to the amount of rain we have received, the bonfire pit was not safe to build around, and we want to keep our students as safe as possible. It is unfortunate to cancel this beloved tradition, but ultimately the safety of our students and everyone else is our greatest priority."
The parade will begin at 6 p.m. at the Texas Tech Broadway entrance and the pep rally at the United Supermarkets Arena (USA) will begin at 7:30 p.m. following the parade. The doors to the USA will open at 7 p.m. and two concession stands will be open for service. More information about Friday night's events and parking can be found on the Student Union and Activities website.
Texas Tech will continue to monitor weather conditions leading up to the scheduled events. For all of the latest information on Texas Tech stay tuned to its social media channels.
