Melissa Schools invites the community to partake in pre-game tailgating for home games held at Cardinal Stadium. Melissa High School’s Varsity Cardinal Football will play the first three consecutive Friday home games next month beginning Sept. 9 at 7:30 p.m. with Homecoming on Sept. 23.
The Cardinal Stadium parking lot is restricted to event parking only. The district has designated an official area for all tailgating as shown in the diagram above. Enlarge map.
The official tailgating area is the Melissa Middle School front parking lot, located east of Cardinal Drive. It begins south of Harrison Street and extends to the end of the middle school carpool lane, located just south of the Competition Gym.
The community can begin tailgating no earlier than 5:30 p.m. Tailgating spots are on a first come, first served basis.
