Paint the Town Purple week upcoming

In celebration of UCA's Centennial, the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce and the Conway Advertising and Promotion Commission are joining together to promote Paint the Town Purple week.

On Oct. 23, all businesses are encouraged to wear the UCA/Paint the Town Purple T-shirts to work and to the Rally at the Plaza. A community-wide UCA pep rally celebration, which will include the annual fight song competition, cookouts provided by Conway businesses, a kid's "Jumpzone" with inflatable space walks and more, will occur at 5:30 p.m. at UCA's Harding Centennial Plaza. The Downtown to UCA Campus Homecoming Parade will take place at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 27. This year's parade will be larger and will include a longer route.

Parade entry forms will be available in the lobby at the Chamber of Commerce, UCA's Buffalo Alumni Hall, and online at www.uca.edu/alumni.
