A tailgate party is a great way to prepare for a big game. If you want to party like the most dedicated LSU fans, go to any tailgate event on the parade grounds. While you’re exploring this area, you’ll find pits that contain many Cajun staples and grill masters who often cook game day dishes that relate to rival mascots. For example, some fans will grill alligator meat when the Tigers battle the Florida Gators.

Visit The Chimes for a Meal

The Chimes is a place where many fans enjoy delicious Louisiana-style food on game day. It’s not far from the campus, so you could travel there on foot. You can also buy wonderful beer at The Chimes.

Admire the Golden Band

When the Golden Band wants to fire up fans, large crowds will travel to Victory Hill. This is where the band plays the iconic fight song.

Hang Out With the Mascot

In Tigerland, the mascot is called Mike the Tiger. As a fan, you should try to visit Mike whenever the LSU Tigers have a home game.

Go to Tiger Stadium During a Pregame

Before every home game, try to enter the stadium early. If you’re late, you’ll miss the pregame activities.
