Are you ready for a weekend of Jimmy Buffett tailgating parties at the Toyota Stadium parking lot in Frisco, TX?
Two local Parrot Head Clubs have organized festivities you won’t want to miss!
Friday starts the big day in the northern suburb of Frisco, Texas, kicking off this huge weekend of partying. Of course, Parrot Heads don’t just party as any old reveler would… they party with a purpose!
You’ll find the most imaginative and creative tailgating setups this weekend: sandy beaches, pirate ships, various games of chance (many of which include alcohol) and instant friends.
Friday will bring a long line of autos and RVs waiting to get in the gates at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas. Unless you have pre-paid to be in the Gold Lot (where the Parrot Head Clubs are located), vehicles can park in the Red Lot (on the west side of the stadium) or in the Blue Lot (east side). It’s a bit pricey – $100 per space for the entire weekend and $60 for Saturday, the day of the Jimmy Buffett concert.
The epicenter of entertainment is in the Gold Lot. Starting Friday night at 6:00 pm, there will be terrific world-class Trop Rock music, brought to you by the Cedar Creek Parrot Head Club. Who wouldn’t want to hear Thom Shepherd & Coley McCabe, Matt Hoggatt and Kelly Brown. Don’t park in the lots unless you’re ready to stay over until Saturday. Parking can be found nearby outside of the Toyota Stadium grounds, and bring your own beverages, chair and food.
Saturday the Cedar Creek Parrot Head Club is bringing even more music to their Pirate Stage in the Gold Parking Lot. The Hill City Band plays from 11am – 12:30pm, then local Trop Rocker Don Burke is up from 12:30pm – 1:30pm. Matt Hoggatt plays again at 1:30pm to 3:00pm and lastly the Bad Monkeys band rounds out the musical lineup from 3:30pm – 6:00pm.
In true Jimmy Buffett tailgating style, there will be fun activities and fund raisers. The Lone Star Parrot Head Club will host the “Sharking Lot Party” starting at 11:00am on Saturday in the Gold Lot. Most importantly to many, they bring in a clean and neat port-a-potty truck and anyone can purchase a one-time use “potty pass” for $5.00. For $12.00, you can have the all-day potty pass and a delicious cheeseburger. For a small donation, folks can also take a throw at individuals in the dunking booth or can imbibe via the Shot Luge or the Shot Ski. All proceeds go the the Dallas/Fort Worth area USO.
Now you have all the fabulous Jimmy Buffett tailgating “Sharking Lot Party” details. Don’t forget to drink lots of water and bring sunscreen so you can enjoy Jimmy’s concert to the fullest. Fins up and see you there!
