Every Friday afternoon of home football game weeks, the park across from Peden Stadium is transformed from its traditional use as a site for picnics, and frisbee-playing. The park, situated along the banks of the Hocking River, becomes Pepsi Tailgreat Park, a pre-game tailgating hotspot prior to the kick-off at Peden Stadium.
Numerous tents scattered throughout the park bring alumns and Bobcat fans together. The park features entertainment areas for children, live music, the smells of charcoal grills and, of course, tailgating.
Prior to kick-off, the Marching 110, the Ohio University marching band, will make their appearance and play a concert for the fans. Then the 110 will lead the fans on a march along the Hocking River to Peden Stadium to cheer on the Bobcats.
