Michigan Tech Homecoming Weekend Begins

Michigan Tech’s annual Homecoming Weekend starts today.

This year’s theme is “Game of Thrones: Winter is Coming.”

Things get started this afternoon as scores of Michigan Tech students brave the chilly waters of the Portage Canal, testing their knowledge of fluid dynamics while risking both hypothermia and humiliation in the Cardboard Boat races.

The action begins at 4 p.m. at the Houghton Waterfront Park.

Student organizations will attempt to race boats constructed entirely out of cardboard and duct tape.

Boats will start lining up at 3:30 p.m.

Nothing gets football fans ready for a big game more than an old fashioned tailgate party.

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, next to Parking Lot 24, there will be free food and fun for those attending the Homecoming Football game.

Kickoff for the game between Michigan Tech and Saginaw Valley State is slated for 1 p.m. Saturday at Sherman Field.
