Vikings tailgate party brings out 'whole valley'
October 3, 2004

Friday night, October 1, the very first Blacklick Valley Tailgate Party was held on the high school practice/track field. A "family"-oriented party was decided upon instead of the usual bonfire. Tickets were sold for $5, which included a wide variety of delicious food, soda, games and entertainment.

WHAT A TURN seemed like the whole valley was there, showing their support! I have no doubt that this will be an event that the town will look forward to for years to come. I've included a few pictures.
