The traditional homecoming week festivities returned for another year at the University of Montana. UM students and alumni enjoyed the Hello Walk, Friday night’s “Yell Night” Pep Rally and the parade before the football game.

The return of University of Montana’s homecoming parade, themed “Might of Montana,” filled South Avenue on Saturday morning before the game against Portland State. The sold out game was attended by more than 26,000 fans to watch the Griz defeat Portland State 53-16.

University of Montana’s homecoming parade came back after a two year hiatus with a new route. Due to construction on the Beartracks Bridge, the parade started at the fairground and moved down South Avenue to Dornblaser Field.
