TailGate Time In Tennessee!!

 It’s UT vs. Bama! Ain’t no way we’re missing that! After the games cheer on the VOLS as we gather together for Blount County’s biggest tailgate party! We will be inviting our local veteran organizations and the community to come together and bring the food, fun, and festivities that is the spirit of VOL football. We will have a huge inflatable projection screen to watch the game on, we will broadcast the game over speakers from WIVK play by play. There will be a live half time performance by Grey Beard! Also, MP Ribbons for MOST TEAM SPIRIT and BEST TAILGATE SETUP.
