STAY PUFT TAILGATE
A passionate group of Notre Dame fans that began their tailgate over 50 years ago that are always willing to share some epic tailgate stories. From dumping sand in the parking lot for a beach party back in the 80s this tailgate has come a long way. While a sibling was enrolled at ND and people constantly had trouble finding the tailgate despite having pole numbers in the parking lot they decided to do something about it to make life easier for those in search. One game around Halloween they found a giant inflatable Frankenstein and people have never had trouble since. They became known as the Frankenstein tailgate after that, and now that Frankenstein was decommissioned since he barely inflated anymore, they have replaced him in the lineup with a giant Mr. Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
