MISSOULA – Applications are now available for entry into this year’s University of Montana Homecoming Parade, scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, in Missoula.
Last year’s parade featured more than 110 entries. This year’s Homecoming theme – “Up With Montana!” – is derived from UM’s fight song, penned in 1914, and celebrates both the rich tradition and exciting future of the University.
