McDonald’s is celebrating History, Heritage and Legacy at HBCU Classics across the country as a part of our True To HBCU program.

The 2017 HBCU Classics kicked off in Memphis at the Southern Heritage Classic between Tennessee State and Jackson State University. Surrounded by bands, fans and football – McDonald’s dominated the tailgate area by sampling five thousand Fruit Punch Slushies, and handing out Rally Towels. Between the selfies frames and the McDonald’s inflatable arches, fans were able to capture pictures of themselves within the space while dancing to the sound of the DJ. Fans also had the opportunity to win $30 worth of McDonald’s arch cards by participating in the “Heads Up” Game or remixing the infamous Big Mac Jingle. All in all, young and old alike were entertained before the game.

Next up, McDonald’s will sponsor the State Fair Classics in Dallas, TX on October 7th, where Grambling State faces off against Prairie View A&M. Come visit the McDonald’s booth on the State Fair Grounds and grab a Mango Pineapple Smoothie.

Don’t forget to check back to see what went down at the McDonald’s Magic City Classic in Birmingham, Alabama on October 28th, the Florida Blue Florida Classic in Orlando on November 18th and the Celebration bowl in Atlanta on December 16th. You won’t want to miss these.
