Thousands of people will converge on downtown Terre Haute this morning as Indiana State University's 9 a.m. Blue and White Homecoming Parade down Wabash Avenue.That scene — dads carrying toddlers on their shoulders, alums sharing laughs, students trudging along on the pub-crawl ritual "The Walk" and youngsters scrambling for tossed candy — has unfolded for decades in the city. It's one of those unique moments when locals and the campus community gather together, hours before the Sycamore football team plays its Homecoming game at Memorial Stadium.
