Some extra Homecoming Week excitement

Third graders swarm Gus Gorilla for his autograph Friday at Carnie Smith Stadium.

Hundreds of Pittsburg area third graders lined up for autographs of PSU athletes and, of course, Gus Gorilla Friday as part of a Chamber of Commerce pep rally and balloon launch in Carnie Smith Stadium.

The balloon launch was originally planned as part of the Chamber’s Paint the Town Red events early in the fall, but was cancelled because of stormy weather. Chamber organizers rescheduled to take advantage of a full week of Homecoming events that come to a big finale on Saturday with the annual Homecoming Parade at 9 a.m. and the Homecoming football game, vs. Missouri Western, at 2 p.m.
