COLUMBIA — House decorations, skits and the MU cheerleaders kicked off MU's 100th Homecoming weekend celebration Friday night in Greektown. Fraternities and sororities entertained fans of all ages with elaborate exhibitions, some of which featured moving parts. The fraternity Beta Theta Pi sold "tiger shades" and gave away cider and cookies, while Delta Upsilon and Delta Delta Delta teamed up to put on a "luck of the Irish" themed skit.

The house decoration competition was followed by a spirit rally on Richmond Avenue with appearances by the MU cheerleaders, Truman the Tiger, Golden Girls and Marching Mizzou.

Homecoming festivities continue at 8 a.m. Saturday with the Brewer breakfast at Brewer Fieldhouse. The Homecoming parade follows at 8:30 a.m. and the football game against Iowa State begins at 1 p.m.
