Immediately following the broadcast at 2 p.m., WUFT will air a special one hour program – “SoulFest 2013” – featuring the best acts from the annual UF student organization talent competition as they compete for a place to perform in Gator Growl.

A rebroadcast of all three programs: “Home,” the 2013 parade and “SoulFest 2013,” is scheduled for Monday, Nov. 11 beginning at 12:30 p.m. on WUFT (Cox Cable channel 3 in Gainesville).
