FREE admission to ‘Parade of Champions’
21 August 2009

BISMARCK (UTN) - Spectators who come to United Tribes Technical College on Saturday, September 12 for the “Parade of Champions” will be admitted to the campus free of charge.

      The 2009 ‘Parade’ takes place on the college campus rather than through downtown Bismarck, as it has for over 20 years.

      Normally an entrance fee is charged because the United Tribes International Powwow is underway on the campus.

      “Because of the unusual circumstance this year we will not charge a fee for those who want to see the parade,” said UTTC President David M. Gipp.

      Another parade took the downtown route on the same day and time.

      Parade spectators will not be charged admission between 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. on parade day when entering the campus main entrance gate at 3315 University Drive.

      The parade is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. The approximate one-mile route follows the campus outer streets: Sisseton Street, All Nations Circle and Rosebud Drive.

      The public is also invited to participate in the parade. Staging begins at 8 a.m. along Burleigh Avenue on the south boundary of the main campus. Enter Burleigh Avenue eastbound off University Drive.
