2) You Can Never Have Enough Activities From bags (cornhole) to beer pong to bocce ball, you can never have enough activities at a tailgate event. When was the last time you were at a tailgate, and you weren’t watching or participating in a game? Plan one or more of these fun activities to keep a healthy level of competition that all sports fans enjoy. 3) Make a Pump-up Playlist The playlist you choose will obviously depend on the type of audience you typically draw. However, you know that a “pump up” list is sure to get everyone psyched for the game! Mix it up with a few classic game day songs and crowd favorites! Of course, you may want to play the game audio while it’s on or you can always spin some tracks during commercials, breaks and timeouts to keep the crowd entertained!
