And very soon, this weekend in fact, tailgates are coming back to Downtown St. Louis.
The Missouri Tigers host the Memphis Tigers on Saturday evening for a non-conference college football showdown at the Dome At America’s Center. It’s the first Mizzou Football game at the Dome since 2010.
The Mizzou Tiger Walk is planned around the Baer Plaza area at 4 p.m. Fans can watch players walking into the stadium, plus performances from the Golden Girls, Marching Mizzou, cheerleaders and mascot Truman.
There will also be a Mizzou Alum tailgate experience at Ballpark Village starting at 2:30 p.m. This will also include giveaways, games, special guest speakers and appearances from the Golden Girls, cheerleaders and Truman.
Laclede’s Landing, which has hosted tailgates for Battlehawks games in the past, tells FOX 2 there hasn’t been anything organized as of Wednesday, but that could possibly change leading up to Saturday’s game.
St. Louis Parking has about two dozen lots near The Dome available for parking, but not necessarily for conventional tailgating activities. Parking will open three hours prior to kickoff, with no in-and-out privileges. No open flames, grills, tables, or tents are allowed.
