Southeastern Louisiana University tailgaters can decorate during the homecoming game on Oct. 27.
There is no charge for groups in Friendship Circle to enter the “Decorate Your Tailgate” contest, SLU officials said. Participants can give a “Lion and Olympics twist” to this year’s Homecoming theme, “Roomie Takes the Gold.”
Judging will start at 1 p.m. and continue before and after the 3 p.m. homecoming parade. Prizes will be given to an overall winner and most creative entry. Both will be announced during the 7 p.m. Lions vs. Central Arkansas game in Strawberry Stadium.
Judging for the littlest Lion “Best Southeastern Outfit” will be at 2 p.m. at the information booth. No registration is necessary to enter the contest.
Tailgaters planning to distribute treats to trick-or-treaters should call (985) 549-5861 so they can be identified as little Lion trick-or-treat friendly during tailgating, SLU officials said.
For information, call (985) 549-5861. A schedule of events, reunions and contests is at http://www.southeastern.edu/homecoming.
