The beloved tradition of Homecoming tailgating came back to Amherst as hundreds of UMass alumni, families and friends gathered at the Homecoming Hockey Tailgate on October 19.
Bring your friends and join the celebration! Enjoy music, fun activities for all ages and a delicious barbecue. Then cheer on the Minutemen as they take to the ice against Big Ten Conference players Michigan State. There will be family fun for everyone. Come play on the inflatable bounce houses, become a pinball wizard at the mobile arcade and participate in the Stockbridge Pumpkin Festival and carving competition.
