Tailgate Party At Courtyard Shops

The Courtyard Shops at Wellington invites area football fans to “get their game on” and celebrate football season at the “Fall For Courtyard” Champions Tailgate Party, a free, special tailgate event Saturday, Sept. 28 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to show off their team spirit to win prizes for the most fan-atic attire, as plaza merchants dress in their favorite team fashions and host fun activities.

The program schedule is packed with family-friendly activities, including tailgate games, an inflatable five-in-one sports center and bounce house, a DJ playing music and spirited fight songs, a “find the football” scavenger hunt and more.

In addition, Courtyard Shops merchants will offer sidewalk specials, shopping discounts, demos and tastings, coupons, offers and promotional items. Plaza restaurants and a fleet of food trucks from Gourmet Truck Expo will serve up a food fest for visitors.

A special “Tail-gate For Tails” area will promote pet rescue and showcase pets available for adoption through the Tri County Humane Society. In addition to prizes and treats for pets donning the best “team spirited” attire, there will be watering and dog pool stations to keep pets comfortable and refreshed.

From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Courtyard Shops will continue its free “Shred-4-Ed” program that invites area residents and businesses to “turn their trash into cash” to generate much-needed funds to support area schools. Event-goers can use the free shredding session to safely dispose of sensitive documents. A donation to their favorite school will be made by Courtyard Shops at Wellington for each container they bring to shred.

The Courtyard Shops at Wellington is located at the corner of Wellington Trace and Greenview Shores Blvd. For more info., visit www.courtyardshopsatwellington.com or call (561) 347-6521.
