University of Wyoming Alumni Association officials have announced a slight change in the UW Homecoming parade route Saturday, Oct. 12. The parade will now travel south on Third Street rather than Second Street, as was previously announced.

The procession of floats, bands and other units begins at 9:30 a.m. The parade starts at Ninth and Ivinson streets, goes west to Third Street, south on Third Street to Grand Avenue, and then east on Grand to 13th Street.

More than 80 entries will participate in the parade, including the addition of eight junior and senior high school bands from Wyoming and Nebraska -- as well as UW’s Western Thunder marching band.

The Homecoming tradition, started in 1922, continues with this year’s theme: “This is the West … Forever Brown and Gold.”
