Friday’s annual Red White Game is not just for football fans — it’s the closest thing Lake Highlands, Texas has to an all-community gathering, and everyone is invited.
Play kicks off at 6 p.m., but you’ll want to be at Wildcat Stadium well before that. Tailgate fun begins at 5 with a visit from the Kona Ice Truck, and a DJ will be spinning tunes to keep the party going.
Just before kickoff, graduating seniors will be introduced wearing T-shirts from their chosen college, and at halftime cheerleaders, Highlandettes, Bell Boys and band members will break away to officially pass the torch to next year’s leaders. The Wildcat Club will sell spirit wear at the Clawset, and the Exchange Club will host a free hot dog picnic on the turf following the game. Game tickets will be sold at the door.
