Rally at the Rails

Join us as we conclude the week's events leading up to the Biggest One-Day Event in the Dakotas!

We're giving the classic pep rally a hobo reboot and taking it downtown! We've invited Jack, the SDSU Dance Team, the SDSU Cheerleading Team, and the Bum Band to bring some SDSU spirit and ignite some enthusiasm! We will also hear from distinguished speakers.

Throughout the rally, we'll have a dig-for-worms contest, bean bags, and yard-sized Jenga. We will also have official Hobo Day buttons for sale, various food trucks and vendors, and music! We hope to see you there!

  • WHEN: 5 - 9 PM on Thursday, October 27
  • WHERE: Downtown Brookings, along 5th street near Wooden Legs and Nick's Hamburger Shop

Get Involved

We'll be having a dig-for-worms contest where participants will shove their faces into a pan of whipped cream and Oreo crumbles to find and eat gummy worms as fast as possible. Whoever eats the most worms in 30 seconds wins!  Sign up the day of the rally. Student organizations and clubs can also have an activity booth. In the past, groups have had face painting, coloring pages, games, and even a dunk tank! 

If you have any questions, please get in touch with us.
