Purdue University will offer a family-friendly parking area for tailgating before home football games this year.
The Family Zone is located at the front of the Gold Lot off of Third Street and McCormick. A map to the lot can be found by clicking here.
The Family Zone is the perfect place to bring your family this weekend for some fun before or after the Purdue vs. Illinois homecoming game Saturday.
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 Katy Travis, Program Director.
Cost to park in the Gold Lot is $10. Ushers will direct cars to the Family Zone.
Homecoming kicks off on Friday evening at 8pm with the Boilermaker Night Train Parade. Purdue University has several other family friendly activities planned for Homecoming weekend. Go here to see a schedule of the events for Friday and Saturday.
