What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

• A&E 1 1 • Sneak Peak: Festival of the Dead Molly Gray/ Arts and Entertainment Editor . So, you think that Halloween is pretty neat, huh? Well listen up. Dia de los Muertos (or Day of the Dead, for us Anglophones) is an annual celebration of ·life, art, and the remembrance of those passed, and could hump All Hallow's Eve on any day of the week. The holiday is traditionally observed in Mexico, but its influence has stretched into the United States, as well as other regions of the Americas. In Missoula, Day of the Dead is celebrated with multiple community • events, including a parade, performanc~s, and massive art displays. Check it out! Downtown MissoUla Festival of the Dead Parade Each year on Nov. 2, the Missoula community, professional artists, and a variety of performers come together to orchestrate one of the largest annual parades in the city. Anybody is welcome to march in the parade, and face-painting services are available for the slightly underdressed. At the parade, loved ones are commemorated with massive banners, and delicious Pan de Muerto is handed out for all to enjoy. But be aware -- this parade is often rained on, in quite a literal sense. Regardless of weather, this parade is consis- tently regarded as one of the most enjoyable events Missoula has to offer. ZACC Pre- Festival Party Looking to ge! your pre-game spook on?
