Tailgate at the Hormel Historic Home on Saturday

The Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers will be facing off at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Before the game, the Hormel Historic Home will give residents the opportunity to have a pre-game tailgate party and concert.

“It’s a great opportunity for people who have family in town to take them to a party and help get away from the holiday stress for a bit,” said HHH Director Holly Johnson.

The party will feature tailgate fare such as hot dogs, nachos, and pretzels as well as bean bag games. A cash bar will also be on hand.

Bissen Family and Friends will play holiday songs as well as classic rock.

“Come relax, unwind, socialize, eat, drink and be merry,” Johnson said.

The Pre-game Tailgate Party will be held from 5-7 p.m. at the Hormel Historic Home. The event is free for HHH members, $5 for non-members. Admission price includes food.
