Lake Highlands will tailgate before the playoff game Friday

If you’re headed to Grand Prairie to watch Lake Highlands play Mansfield Summit in bi-district football playoffs, you’re invited to join your neighbors for tailgating at the Gopher Bowl. The game begins at 7:30, but the tailgate party kicks off at 6 in the stadium parking lot. Attendees are encouraged to bring food for sharing and beverages for your own family.

Game tickets are available Friday from 9-1 in the LHHS foyer ($6 for adults, $4 for students) or at the gate ($8). The Gopher Bowl is at 101 High School Drive on the grounds of Grand Prairie High School.
