Students and community members can tailgate at the LeGrand Alumni and Visitors Center starting at 1 p.m, said Shelbi Scott, events coordinator for Alumni Association. The event will offer free food and drinks from 4:30 to 6 p.m.

The event, which will incorporate the theme of Cinco de Mayo, will offer activities for children of all ages, Scott said. Guests can color their own papel picado, make paper plate tambourines, play "Pin the Sombrero on Roscoe" and have their fingernails painted in ASU's school colors of blue and gold.

Ballet Azteca group will make a special appearance to perform a traditional Folklorico dance, Scott said.

"A very energetic group from Still Water Bar and Grill will also be tailgating and giving away several prizes, she said.

Gandy Ink, KIXY, AB Distributing, Sam's Club and Chick-Fil-A will sponsor the event.

Scott said the Alumni Association enjoys holding these kinds of events to show the ASU athletics program support.

"We also love how events like this get the whole community of San Angelo involved, generating even more support for the university", she said.
