We got an announcement about the GSU Downtown Tailgate this morning. Hmm…we are thinking we might go. We thought we would share it with you in case you want to join in, too!
Georgia Southern and Downtown Development Authority Host “Downtown Tailgate”
The road to Allen E. Paulson Stadium goes through downtown on Friday, Oct. 29 as Georgia Southern University and the Downtown Statesboro Development Authority host a free “Downtown Tailgate” from 6-8 p.m.
The spirit and excitement of Saturday’s Georgia Southern vs. Samford University football game will be captured in a Courthouse Square celebration for families, students and alumni that features live entertainment, food, games and prizes.
Fans are invited to wear their True Blue colors and to join Wildlife Center Director Steve Hein and Freedom, GUS, and the Georgia Southern cheerleaders, along with vendors including Boyd’s BBQ, Brewster’s Ice Cream, and the Coffee Wagon. A soft drink tent will also be on site and guests are welcome to bring their own picnic dinners. A bouncy house for kids will be provided by Party Harbor and a drawing will be held to win an official Georgia Southern carved pumpkin and two general admission tickets to Saturday’s 2 p.m. Eagles vs. Samford game. Music will be provided by the local Southern rock and blues band “Two Left Feet” and there will be a preview of the Halloween “Thriller” dance. The evening culminates with a live broadcast of WTOC-TV’s “Georgia Southern Tailgatin’ Show” from 7:30 to 8 p.m. on the Courthouse lawn.
A Downtown Tailgate celebration is also scheduled for Friday, Nov. 5, preceding the Georgia Southern vs. Appalachian State game.
