Homecoming begins Friday

This year’s Homecoming: A Wildcat Tradition will begin Friday with a film screening at the Davis campus. The film, “Monsters University,” is scheduled for a free showing at 8:30 p.m.

Saturday will be the masquerade-themed Homecoming Dance, followed by the “true Wildcat” kiss at midnight. These traditions will kick off the following week’s activities.

Monday will be a pep rally in downtown Ogden at The Junction, featuring street painting, food and more. Weber State University cheerleaders will perform as well as the dance squad.

Throughout the week, a homecoming booth will occupy the campus and students can “trade up” shirts from other schools for WSU homecoming shirts.

The pre-game tailgate party will begin at 3 p.m. on Saturday in the lot north of the Stewart Stadium with food booths, music and entertainment. The Wildcats will take on the California State University, Sacramento Hornets at 6 p.m. Fireworks will follow the game.
