Even though the annual University of Montana homecoming celebration is a little later than usual this year, parade entry forms are now being accepted.

The annual homecoming parade is set for Saturday, October 14, starting in downtown Missoula. This year's theme is "Reflections: Honoring the Past, Shaping the Future."

Applications are available here or you can call the University of Montana Alumni Office, 406-243-5211. Applications are also available at the Missoula Chamber of Commerce, 825 East Front Street.

To pay just $40 for the early-bird fee, application deadline is September 22. After that it's $50, with a final deadline of September 29.

Always a huge event and great exposure for your business or non-profit group. Good luck and we look forward to seeing you in the parade!
