The Homecoming festivities have already started, this year's theme is the Legends of Bucky Badger. We wanted to take sometime and show you how campus used to celebrate Homecoming traditions! All of these photos and more can be found in our UW-Madison Collection.
Get out your paper mache, all you student organizations and Greeks! This years parade is on Friday, Oct 8 and will go from Gilman to State Street. The parade has been going on for years and the University community always has some great floats! From Homecoming paper mache animals to a hobo band, in 1986 there was even a Homecoming camel!
The pep rally is another time honored tradition on campus. The image below is from the Homecoming pep rally in 1947. This year's pep rally will follow the parade. And don't miss out on the fireworks!
Homecoming is a fun time here at UW Madison. Have you and your friends participated in any of the events in the past or this year?
On Friday, we will blog about the upcoming rivalry game between Minnesota and our Badgers. So look out for the axe.
If you want more information on the festivities this year go to the UW Homecoming site.
