Football in the Park

What do we love in the South? College Football!! Why not integrate this into the many activities going on at Big Spring Park? I believe this could be a great community event. We could do a setup similar to the Movies In The Park on a big screen for night games, have food trucks, and (if permitted by the city) beverages for sale by local craft beer breweries such as Straight To Ale, Brew Stooges, etc. It would be ...more »
