Game Day at the University of Kansas 08.28.2014
Well, it’s scorching hot here in Kansas City this week, but with the kids heading back to school, we can’t help but feel like fall isn’t too far away. Along with our visions of pumpkin patches, apple-picking and pumpkin spice lattes, we are getting excited for football season at our alma mater, KU! Morgan and I are both born & bred Jayhawks from the University of Kansas and even met there while we studied Graphic Design. So, we hopped at the chance to share our love for game day at KU and give away an amazing prize to one lucky reader!
If you haven’t been to a football game at Memorial Stadium, you should really check it out! It is an electric energy from the tailgating to the game itself. We, of course, loved going to games while we were in school, but now that we have kids, we are absolutely loving taking them to experience what we loved so much as kids. I remember going to games as a little girl with my parents, stopping at Joe’s on the way in for a sandwich and cookies, and heading up to the hill.
Even though it was fun to go to games back in our day, it is even better now! KU has made game day a blast for kids. They now have a Hy-Vee Hawk Zone that opens two and a half hours before kick-off and closes at the end of the first quarter. The fun zone includes inflatable games, live radio broadcasts, tackling station/drills, face painting, a balloon artist, free KU promotional items, fan photo booth and visits from KU student-athletes to sign autographs to name a few. Our boys will be in heaven now that they’re old enough to do all of these fun activities!
To make the experience even better for kids, they can join the Junior Jayhawk Kids Club, which is The Official Kids Club of Kansas Athletics for all kids ages 13 & under. For just $45, your child receives tickets to several different KU games, really nice KU gear and admission to special KU events!
In honor of the start of the football season, we have the honor of giving away a great prize pack from the Kansas Athletic Department! We are SO excited to be able to give away a complete game day experience for one lucky family including all of these goodies:
• A single game family 4-pack of tickets to a KU football game of your choice
• One $50 gift card to Downtown Lawrence
• One Junior Jayhawk Kids Club membership
Good luck! We hope to see all of you Jayhawk fans in Lawrence this fall! Rock Chalk!
