Expanded Tailgate Tour starts in a month


If you live in the state of Iowa, there’s a good chance that the Cyclones’ bus caravan will be in your neighborhood soon.

Officials announced recently that its expanded (now 12 stops) state-wide Cyclone Tailgate Tour has been finalized.

The particulars: 12 communities… 6 dates… 1 Cy… unlimited fun with coaches and student-athletes.

In its fifth season, the Cyclone Tailgate Tour retains its kid and family friendly feel. Admission is free.

At the lunch events, attendees can get a bite to eat, shake a few hands and hear comments from key Cyclone dignitaries. The evening gatherings feature, tailgate type food for purchase, inflatable attractions and lots of Cyclone cheer.
