ST. CLOUD – St. Cloud State University officials may have abolished Homecoming weekend, but that’s not stopping the downtown bars from celebrating.  Dan Wedin is the President of the St. Cloud Hospitality Association.  He says they’re hosting their own “Homecoming weekend” on Saturday, October 8th.

Wedin says about 15-20 bars will host their traditional early morning breakfast and drink specials.

The SCSU Football team does play a home game that day.  They’ll be hosting Minnesota State – Mankato at 1:00 p.m.

Earlier this year St. Cloud State got rid of the traditional Homecoming event, and replaced it with a series of four “Celebrate! St. Cloud State” events.  President Earl Potter has called the old Homecoming a tradition the University was not proud of.  The first Celebrate! St. Cloud State event is scheduled for October 1st.
