This year marks 30 years of “spirit, energy and tradition” illustrated by America’s historically black colleges at the Circle City Classic. On October 12, the Grambling State University Tigers will take on the Alcorn State University Braves at the Lucas Oil Stadium. Bring a friend because tickets to the game are BOGO FREE at all price levels ($10-$50). Proceeds from the event fund scholarships for Indiana Black Expo. Inc. and the Indiana Sports Corporation.
In days leading up to the game, participate in one of the many fan-frenzy events available. Kick off your weekend with the Classic Cabaret at the Indiana Convention Center. Then, get pumped for the big game with musical indulgence of a different kind at the Classic Pep Rally on Monument Circle.
Continue the excitement the next morning at the Classic Parade. The Parade begins at 10 am at North Street and Pennsylvania Street and tickets cost $10 each. After the parade, march over to South Street and experience the Classic Fan Fest Tailgate, running from noon to 10 pm. Pick up a few souvenirs, indulge in some tailgate grub and enjoy one of Indy’s most popular bands, Toy Factory!
