For most of us, early fall means two things: football and frights. We often split our time between watching horror movies, tailgating, and of course, making our favorite seasonal treats for each. But what if we were to combine our favorite fall passions into one ultimate autumnal good time?
There is so much you can do to make these two fall traditions blend perfectly. Pick a game weekend close to Halloween and let the word spread that you are taking your tailgate experience up a notch with a costume theme. You could invite friends to arrive as zombie football players, dead fans, or even cheerleaders so you can look gruesome and still support your team. Bring pumpkins and have the kids paint them in team pride colors and even make it extra-creepy by draping spooky cobwebs all throughout your tailgating tent.
