      HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University tailgaters are invited to let their decorating flair "roar" at Homecoming, Saturday, Oct. 27.
     There is no charge for groups in Friendship Circle to enter the "Decorate Your Tailgate" contest. Participants can give a "Lion and Olympics twist" to this year's Homecoming theme, "Roomie Takes the Gold."
     Judging will take place beginning at 1 p.m. and continue before and after the 3 p.m. Homecoming parade. Prizes will be awarded to an overall winner and most creative entry. Both will be announced during the 7 p.m. Lions vs. Central Arkansas game in Strawberry Stadium.

     "Since Homecoming 2012 is right before Halloween, there are some special activities planned for our younger Lion fans," said Erin Cowser, executive director of public and governmental affairs. "There will be trick-or-treat during tailgating and a contest to determine which little Lion fan has the best Southeastern outfit."

     Judging for the littlest Lion "Best Southeastern Outfit," is scheduled at 2 p.m. at the information booth, Cowser said. No registration is necessary to enter the contest.

     Also, only tailgaters planning to distribute treats for trick-or-treators should call 985-549-5861 so they can be identified as little Lion trick-or-treat friendly during tailgating.
     For more information, call 985-549-5861. A complete schedule of Homecoming 2012 events, reunions and contests is available at
