‘This is how we tailgate’: Wildcat fans prep for football season
On every home gameday in the fall in Manhattan, Kansas, the empty parking lots outside
Bill Snyder Family Stadium transform into a giant celebration of purple pride, as
K-Staters gather to tailgate before the football game.
You can smell the delicious food cooking on barbecue grills across the parking lot, hear the sounds of laughter as family and friends gather together and swap favorite K-State memories, and see Powercat flags waving in the breeze.
Tailgating is a time-honored K-State tradition, and we asked alumni and friends to share some of their favorite tailgating photos. See some of these photos in the gallery below, and then read on for more news and updates that will help you get prepped for K-State football season!
