It's that time again! Time for the “Greatest Homecoming on Earth” at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, NC. The entire weekend Friday, October 14 through Sunday, October 16, is packed full of events including a parade, Fanfest celebration, tailgating, and tons of activities for the whole family.

The schedule for the 2011 Aggie FanFest is Friday from 11am to 11pm, Saturday from 7am to 11pm, and Sunday from 11am to 4 pm. This year's event will be even bigger than last year, which attracted over 40,000 people. The FanFest will take place at War Memorial Stadium, and there will be over 100 vendors offering festival food, sports memorabilia, crafts, and more!
Be sure to
line the streets of downtown Greensboro for the North Carolina A&T State University parade on Saturday morning at 8am. The parade begins on North Murrow Boulevard, travels through East Lindsay Street, and ends on Laurel Street. There will be marching bands, dancers, cheerleaders, majorettes, and a drum line that will get you up and moving!
All the weekend events lead up to one important game on Saturday at 1:30pm against the Delaware State University Hornets where the Aggies will see if they can hold their recent winning streak at their home turf Aggie Stadium.
