JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson State University kicks off the height of its homecoming festivities with a parade Saturday morning on the JSU parkway.

This year's theme is "Tiger Takeover: A Blue World Order".

Hundreds watched the marching bands, beauty queens, floats and Jackson State royalty make their way along the parade route.

A fan favorite of course JSU's Sonic Boom of the south. Die hard supporters look forward to the parade each year.

"My children are in the parade, and I love Jackson State," said Shalanda Thompson. "I'm a student at Jackson State, so it was only right that I came out this morning to support."

The Tigers take on the Prairie View Panthers for homecoming.
