Reds Invade Yellowland

Parade To Honor "Good Old Days"

.. There will be a grand parade in Yellowstone on Saturday June 2, 2007. The theme of the parade is "Transporting Yellowstone," and will feature different modes of transportation over the years; including the "New Yellow Bus." The parade is to honor the return of the fleet of "old" Yellow Buses to Yellowstone.
.. Glacier National Park will send one of it's justly famous red and black buses to celebrate with the new old fleet in Yellowstone. (Do "Jammers" only exist in Glacier?)

On Friday, June 1, a Red Bus is scheduled to depart East Glacier at 8:00 a.m. for its journey to Yellowstone. GPI's transportation manager, Dave Eglsaer has chosen a route to show off the vintage Red to communities as it drives through Browning, Bynum, Choteau, Great Falls, I-15 South to Helena, Townsend, I-90 east to Bozeman, Livingston and on Highway 89 to Yellowstone. (from Business Wire press release.)

.. The event marks the first time that a red bus will share the road with a yellow bus. We hope that the sibling rivalry will engender a good time for all.
