Purdue University will offer a family-friendly parking area for tailgating before home football games this year.
Family Zone, located at the front of the Gold Lot off of Third Street, and will be available at all Purdue University home football games.
The Family Zone is close to Streetfest, which is held before each home game. Street Fest is a fun family event that begins approximately three hours prior to kick off. Streetfest includes inflatables such as a bounce house and a bungee run, an interactive area, temporary Purdue tattoos, and visits from various athletic team players.
Family Zone is a project of the Drug-Free Coalition of Tippecanoe County and Purdue University.
“The Drug-Free Coalition of Tippecanoe County is excited to work with Purdue to provide a family-friendly area where young people can comfortably tailgate,” said Karah Rawlings, coalition director.
Cost to park in the Gold Lot is $10. Ushers will direct cars to the Family Zone.
