Homecoming Weekend continues at Middle Tennessee State University. The big parade starts at Central Magnet School at 10:00 o'clock this morning (Saturday, 10/6/2012) and continues down East Main and onto Middle Tennessee Boulevard. At 12:30 this afternoon a special ceremony to rename the road that surrounds Walnut Grove will take place. The new name is Harrison-Black Circle.
