Five can't-miss events on Blue-White Weekend

UNIVERSITY PARK – The schedule for the annual Blue-White Game is out. There are a plethora of activities planned around the spring scrimmage, which is one of the most highly-attended scrimmages in the country.

However, Blue-White Weekend is so much more than just a football game. For many, it’s a reunion with family, friends and fans you haven’t seen since the fall.

Since there are so many facets to Blue-White Weekend and the Blue-White Game, here are five of our favorite things associated with the game – things you simply can’t miss.

The Tailgating – Beaver Stadium parking lots open at 8 a.m., which gives you plenty of time to tailgate for the 3 p.m. game. Dust off the coolers, grills and cornhole and get ready for a long, fun day in the parking lots. Pack plenty of food and dr

Fan Festival/Blue-White Family Fun Zone – Two different things. The Fan Festival takes place along Curtin Road beginning at 9 a.m. Meanwhile, over at Holuba Hall (a short walk from the stadium), the Blue-White Family Fun Zone will be staged from 9 to 11 a.m. Definitely make the walk to Holuba Hall to see where the team practices during inclement weather and where Penn State Pro Day is held.

The Autograph Session – One of the biggest events of the weekend, the autograph session is a must-see. This year, the event is being held from 12:15 to 1:05 p.m. at Gates A, B, C, E and F. Grab a football, a pennant, jersey or even an autograph book and get in line early! The lines get long and you don’t want to miss your favorite Nittany Lion.

The Blue-White Game – OK, you didn’t think we’d have a list and leave the game off it, did you? Of course not. While it’s just blue vs. white, brother vs. brother, it’s still a fun game to watch to see how the Nittany Lions are shaping up for the 2018 season. Who will replace Saquon Barkley, Mike Gesicki and Jason Cabinda, just to name a few.

The Beaver Stadium Run – Get up and at ‘em early Sunday morning for the annual Paterno Beaver Stadium Run. If you’ve ever wanted a chance to run through the tunnel and on to the Beaver Stadium grass, here’s your chance! The run will end at the 50-yard line. All proceeds from the event go to Pennsylvania Special Olympics.
