The second year of the family friendly tailgate area wrapped up Nov. 18 before the University of Alabama’s final home game of the 2017 season.

The alcohol-free tailgate on the Bryce Lawn featured an appearance by UA’s equestrian team along with several horses. Before games earlier in the season, the family friendly tailgate area featured reptiles from UA’s biology department and appearances by former UA football stars Eddie Jackson and Antonio Langham.

The area featured inflatable bounce houses, food, merchandise vendors, face painting, a shuttle service to Bryant-Denny Stadium and more activities geared toward families.

Fans could set up there own tailgate tents free of charge beginning four hours before kickoff.

Organizers said they hope to build on the success of the family friendly tailgate and add features as demand grows.
