WARRENSBURG, MO (July 30, 2014) – A fun-filled event that has brought thousands of local residents and students together since 2004, the University of Central Missouri’s Get the Red Out celebration is planned for 4-6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11.
This cooperative community event, which offers opportunities for local businesses and non-profit organizations, will take place on Holden Street, between South and Clark streets, under sponsorship of the university and the Greater Warrensburg Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center.
Everyone is invited to join in the activities and show their support for the UCM Mules as they battle the Emporia State University Hornets in the first home game of the season at 7 p.m. in Audrey J. Walton Stadium at Vernon Kennedy Field.
“Celebrating its 10th year, Get the Red Out has become a popular tradition at UCM, and a great opportunity for the community and the campus to show their support for UCM athletics and celebrate a new academic year. Participation keeps growing, so we are expecting a record crowd for Get the Red Out, and we hope those who attend will also stay for the Mules game,” said Robin Krause , director of marketing and promotions.
Get the Red Out will include inflatables and games for the kids, Star Wars characters, hoop shooting with the Mules and Jennies basketball teams and more. Businesses, profit/non- profit organizations, student organizations and others who would like to share information about their businesses, products or project also are invited to participate.
Vendors and others who want to register for a booth must do so online by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 2. Only online registrations will be accepted, and there is no charge to enter a booth. Booth space is limited due to high demand. For more information, call 660-543-4640.
