"I absolutely love it, Malik said. :I come every year and I bring my family."
But this year, the homecoming festivities are celebrating a special milestone.
"It's the 100th-year anniversary," Malik said. "Go Tigers!
Whether they were seven like Delton Wright who said his favorite part was the bands...or 97 like alumni cheerleader Burnice Brunson, the TSU faithful proved they're never too young or too old to show their Tigers pride.
Of course many of the people that showed up to enjoy the parade say it represents a lot more than just a fun atmosphere. It also celebrates the rich history and tradition of TSU.
"It means everyhing," said Geno Yancy, who graduated in 1996. "It means that Tennessee State University, through education, through the commitment within the community is here to stay and that's what it means so much."
Yancy said the parade also teaches the younger generation the importance of going to college.
While some like 10-year-old Suzie Nathan said the parade made them want to someday enroll at TSU, Delton said he's not sure yet but he had a great Saturday morning wearing blue and white with his family.

Former Dyer County constable sentenced to prison
May 23, 2013 12:50 GMT
DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) -- Former Dyer County Constable Derick Shane Hundley has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison.
The State Gazette (http://bit.ly/14UHydd ) reported Hundley was sentenced Monday after earlier entering a guilty plea to enticement of a minor through electronic means. The government dropped a child pornography count.
Prosecutors said Hundley, who is 30, used a cellphone to try to entice a minor female to have sex with him. Police arrested Hundley last July and found an external hard drive that contained numerous images of minors involved in sex. He resigned from the constable post he had won in 2010 after his arrest.
