CHAPEL HILL—Kenan Stadium will come alive once again on August 3 as Tar Heel fans will have the chance to get geared up for another season of UNC football and the “Fedora Freak Show.”
The fan fest will occur just 26 short days before the Tar Heels kick off the entire college football season with a huge rivalry game against the University of South Carolina Gamecocks down in Columbia, S.C. The game will be broadcasted on ESPN nationwide on Aug. 29.
With high hopes for a special season, this year’s Meet The Heels will sure to be a great atmosphere for all in attendance.
The day’s festivities will begin when the gates to Kenan open at 3 p.m. The official Meet the Heels program is set to start at 4 p.m. Fans should use Gates 2, 5, 6 or either of the Blue Zone gates in the east end zone.
The event will be jam packed with ways for Tar Heel fans to interact with the UNC football team. And this includes autographs. Defensive players will sign from 4-5 p.m. and offensive players will sign from 5-6 p.m. Head coach Larry Fedora will be signing autographs from 4-6 p.m.
The kids will have plenty to get excited about as well. A Carolina Kids Zone will be located in the east end of Kenan Stadium featuring inflatables and games for children of all ages. The Kids Zone will close at 6 p.m.
In addition, free Carolina football trading cards, pocket schedules, and posters will be handed out until supplies run out.
Food will be sold from the concession stands and restroom facilities on the north and south sides will be open for the event.
