Aug. 20, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- More than 25,000 students and other members of the Western Michigan University community are expected to jam the Fountain Plaza near Miller Auditorium for Bronco Bash from 3 to 10 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 27.

The event, now in its 23rd year, is a huge celebration welcoming students to the campus and to Kalamazoo. It features games, music and nearly 400 booths, where students can peruse the wares of area merchants and get information about WMU departments, student organizations and local volunteer opportunities. Festivities also include a food court and novelty entertainment activities.

This year's event kicks off with a performance by the WMU Pep Band. At 8:15 p.m. there will be a performance by the group 19 Wheels, a local favorite. Also appearing during the event will be four area bands, Immigrant Blue, Dezert Eez, the Stiffs and Zambonie.

Bronco Bash 2003 is being sponsored by Kinko's; 107.7 WRKR; 103.3 WKFR; and WMU's Division of Student Affairs, Student Activities and Leadership Programs, Campus Activities Board, and 89.1 WIDR FM.
