The final stop for the 2013 summer Indiana Athletics Tailgate Tour will be Thursday in Bloomington.

Thursday’s event will include speaking appearances by IU football Kevin Wilson, baseball coach Tracy Smith, volleyball coach Sherry Dunbar and athletic director Fred Glass. The Voice of the Hoosiers, Don Fischer, will emcee the program.

The Memorial Stadium Tailgate Tour event will begin at 5:30 p.m. near the south end zone of the stadium. Fans will get an opportunity to see IU football practice in what Wilson has described as a controlled scrimmage with no tackling. The event runs until 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are available for $10 for IU Alumni Association, I Association and Varsity Club members and $15 for non members. There will be food and drinks available as well as a cash bar.

In addition to remarks by head coaches and Glass, the event will feature inflatable games for kids, opportunities for autographs and photos with three current trophies: Men’s Basketball Big Ten trophy, Baseball’s Big Ten trophy and Soccer’s national championship trophy.

Tickets can be purchased in advance through the IU Alumni Association website.
