In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Your guide to a perfect tailgate with Academy Sports and Walker’s Market

Football season is back!

Down here in the South they say football is king. But it’s not just the game on the field that makes Saturdays so special…it’s everything. It’s the marching bands and the rowdy crowds. It’s the rivalries and the passion. But the key to it all starts with one thing – the perfect tailgate.

We stopped by Academy Sports and Walker’s Market in Huntsville to check out everything you’ll need to jump start your party. From the setup and the food to the entertainment, we’ve got you covered. And whether it’s Roll Tide or War Eagle, our guide will help you pull off one heck of a tailgate.
