Help kick off the start of the school year and the 2012 MSU football season! Join the Montana State University Cat Walk on Friday, August 24th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Main Street in downtown Bozeman. It's free and open to the public:

It's a "cannot miss" community tradition on August 24th. MSU President Waded Cruzado, the MSU Spirit of the West Marching Band, Champ, students, players and community members will all make their way down Main Street and through the Mall, creating some serious "Bobcat Buzz" along the way. They'll be stoping off at businesses and stores, playing the fight song and passing out Bobcat gear. Grab some fun gear and treats for the kids, a game schedule and the new 2012 window decal!

The Cat Walk will begin at 11 a.m. on August 24th at First Interstate Bank (Grand Ave and Main St.). Grab lunch or visit your favorite business as you catch some Bobcat spirit! The event is free and open to the public and will happen rain or shine. For more information, contact the MSU Athletic Department at 994-4221 or visit
