Activities will take place outdoors, spaced out on the campus’s front lawn along Troy Road. There will be plenty of parking on campus.

“We wanted to do something fun for the community before the Tigers’ football game Friday night,” said L&C President Ken Trzaska. “I’ll be there, probably kicking a soccer ball around with some of our players. I hope to meet a lot of people from this terrific community.”
