There is a White Out in Tucson for the playoff, right after a tail gate. We love the WHITE OUT, which is fan interactive, creates a visual spectacle, and its pretty easy to gets fans engaged. It’s also now a staple of game entertainment….so we thought it might be a good time to review where it came from as well.
Get to @TCCTucson early ahead of our #CalderCup playoff home debut with a WHITEOUT Tailgate Party presented by @CirrusVisual! 🙌
