KEYC - Visit Mankato's Tailgate Thursday

Visit Mankato's Tailgate Thursday

Posted: Updated:

Tailgate Thursday will take place as the Vikings come to town on Thursday, July 24 between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. This welcome party will be located at the Minnesota State University, Mankato campus, on the lawn across from the Julia Sears dorms.

This is an exciting opportunity to engage with the Minnesota Vikings before camp even starts on July 25. In fact, the Tailgate Thursday event is the best day and place to score a Vikings autograph. In addition to autograph opportunities, fans will also have the opportunity to meet Vikings Cheerleaders, play games, receive give-a-ways and enjoy food, beverages and treats. Radio Mankato will be on-site providing music and entertainment, while Angie's Kettle Corn and Pepsi will be providing product samples.

Fans are encouraged to come and join in the fun of this free tailgate event, lining up to welcome the Vikings on the way to their dorms. Tailgate Thursday is a chance for fans to sport their Vikings spirit gear and make welcome signs. Posters and markers will be provided on site to do so. Prizes will be given to the best dressed Vikings fan and best homemade welcome poster.
