Fireworks will cap a full day of activities in conjunction with Vanderbilt's Black and Gold Spring Game, scheduled Sunday, April 17 on campus.
The fireworks show is scheduled immediately after first-year Commodore Head Coach James Franklin puts his squad through the program's first intrasquad spring game in more than a decade.
Admission to the Black and Gold Spring Game - and all associated activities - is free. The donation of a children's book to the Books from Birth program is encouraged. The game will kickoff at 6 p.m. CT.
A number of promotions are aimed at a large student turnout:
Fans wanting to tailgate can use surface parking lots 1, 1A, 2 and 4, with all opening at 12 p.m.
Vandyville, the popular gameday tailgating location along Natchez Trace, opens three hours prior to the game. Live music, inflatable games for kids and fan contests will be among the attractions in Vandyville.
A special autograph session with current Commodore players also will start at 3 p.m.
