Fans Say Turkey Day Classic Pre-Game Celebration Best Yet
Part of the Thanksgiving tradition in Montgomery is the Turkey Day Classic football game between Alabama State University and Tuskegee University.
The 89th annual celebration started this morning with a parade in downtown and continued into the afternoon with a tailgating feast.
"It's awesome! It's unbelievable," says Alicia Carson, who was a student at ASU 31 years ago.
Once the parade wrapped up, thousands headed to campus to continue the celebration and indulge in tailgate eats before the game.
Earlier in the week, many were concerned about the availability of parking since there are only 4,000 parking spaces on campus.
ASU made other arrangements including parking in and around the downtown area.
