Default My son's first Willy B game !!!

So my son's birthday is this weekend and I am taking him to his first Gamecock game beside the spring game. I am very excited but would like to find out a few things.

One.. is where to park
Two.. is where to be for the gamecock walk
Three.. any great places to hang out and tailgate before the game ( family environment)

Just curious I would really like for him to have a great experience for his first game.

I would get a one game pass for the farmers market for about $30, that way you would literally be right beside the gamecock walk. That's where i tailgate and it's so much nicer than the fairgrounds.

They have general admission parking day of in the back of the farmers market you will want to take National Guard Road to the last entrance. It cost 40 dollars to park there.

We are stubborn South Carolinians who do not adjust well to change. In fifty years, it will still be the old farmers market area.

Hard to change habits. It was the farmers market for as long as anyone can remember.

When you say farmers market everyone knows exactly what you mean. Gamecock park. I bet half the fans would need to guess.

I park at Olympia school, easy in and out after the game. 5 minute walk to the Gamecock Village/Stadium. Olympia is great for families because they tell people no alcohol, they don't enforce the policy unless somebody is just being a a-hole, so it keeps it a lot more kid friendly. Plenty of space to set up a tent, some chairs, and a grill. Large grass area to throw the ball around in. $20 and they have RCSD doing security for the lot during the game and stopping traffic for you to get out after the game.

If you can stand walking a little farther, there is $10 parking on Bluff Industrial behind Bernie's.

Have a good time with your son Saturday. Hopefully we're all going home happy.

TO many choices. I probably will go with the farmers market, unless they are filled up. I have a couple of friends that park all over so maybe I can grab a spot besides them. I really appreciate all of you guys and the input.

This is my son's first game also. Not sure how old your son is, but mine is 7. he has been to Spring Games, but this is the first real one.

I want to do the Gamecock Walk. 2 hours before kickoff, correct?

Not really, and if it does fill up they will open the second lot at the front of the school. For a game against Coastal, I wouldn't worry about it filling up.

What is the best route to take to get there? The times that I have passed by, it has been by the side road adjacent to the road that passes right in front of Sewell's

Default Re: My son's first Willy B game !!!

Wow, so this will be my son's first sporting event of any kind. He will be 4 in December so I am not expecting much. He is going with another 3 year old girl to help "keep him occupied" at the tailgate and hopefully inside the game. He's know who the Gamecocks are, can name and point out Clowney and Mike Davis, and knows the U-S-C Goooo Cocks cheer. I'm thinking he will have a blast. I'm going to try and get in an hour early prior to kickoff when they are out on the field warming up. See if he can get a high five from a player or Cocky. If he can't behave his little butt will be going home, but we're going to give it a shot. Thsi is the game to try it out.
