Montana State University and the Downtown Bozeman Association will host the seventh annual Cat Walk on Friday, Aug. 26, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Main Street in Bozeman.

MSU President Waded Cruzado, Champ the Bobcat mascot, the MSU Spirit of the West Marching Band, students and student-athletes, and community members will make their way down Main Street to create “Bobcat Buzz” throughout downtown.

The group will visit businesses along the way, play the fight song and pass out Bobcat gear, treats for kids and game schedules. Also, attendees will have a chance to meet the new MSU Athletic Director Leon Costello and head football coach Jeff Choate, and get autographs from your favorite Bobcat football, basketball and volleyball players.

The walk will begin at 11 a.m. at First Interstate Bank—located at Grand Avenue and Main Street—and move east down the south side of Main Street, stopping into several businesses along the way. Midway through the event, walkers will make a 30-minute stop at Soroptimist Park, located at Rouse Avenue and Main Street, for refreshments and autograph signing by athletes.

Walkers will then head west down the north side of Main Street finishing at Wells Fargo Bank, located at Grand Avenue and Main Street. Bobcat sports fans are encouraged to join in the Cat Walk and spread the Bobcat Spirit.

This event is free and open to the public, and will take place rain or shine.
