Tag Your Calendar! SMC To Host Family Picnic Tailgate On Halloween For Homecoming:

Tag your calendar! Santa Monica College will host a Family Picnic Tailgate on Saturday, Oct. 31. The free community event leading up to the SMC Corsairs 2015 Homecoming Game offers activities for all ages and features a DJ, carnival games with Halloween-themed prizes, balloon artists, free glitter and henna ‘tattoos,’ face painting, and more! Kids are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes and go trick-or-treating at the booths of a vibrant selection of SMC student clubs.

Held on The Quad at SMC’s main campus (1900 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica), the tailgate will also feature beverages, snacks, and meals for purchase from three food trucks: Oaxaca on Wheels, offering fresh Mexican options; Shake Ramen, offering entrees and boba and tea beverages; and Green Truck, providing a kids’ menu and sustainable vegetarian and vegan selections.

Picnicking and blankets to sit on are also welcome, but alcoholic beverages, glass containers, and barbecues are prohibited, as are chairs with pointed legs. Please note that SMC is a smoke free campus and ALL smoking is prohibited.

The tailgate caps off SMC’s Spirit Week entertainment and activities – including the popular Club Row featuring more than 50 student clubs at 11:15 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 29 – planned by the SMC Homecoming Committee and led by Associated Students director of student outreach Alexandra Brechensbauer.

In this year’s action-packed football game, the SMC Corsairs will challenge the LA Southwest College Cougars. The renowned Santa Monica High School Vikings Marching Band – one of the oldest marching bands in the western US – will perform during halftime activities, which also include a parade of all the SMC athletic teams to show SMC school spirit, a raffle for three iPad Minis, and a field-goal kicking contest that will give five students the chance to win up to a $1,000 in SMC Bookstore gift cards.

Tailgate festivities start at 10:30 a.m., with the Homecoming Game kick-off at 1 p.m. at Corsair Field. Admission is FREE for the game and all pre-game activities. Ample free parking is available on the premises

The Family Picnic Tailgate is sponsored by the Santa Monica College Associated Students in coordination with Corsair Athletics, the SMC Office of Public Programs, The SMC Foundation, and the SMC Alumni Association.
