After positive feedback from last year's event the Gamecock Club is hosting another Fan Fest this year for the Garnet & Black Spring Game on April 14 at 1 p.m. Admission is free for the spring game and Fan Fest. We're changing a few things up though, with some of the fun going on before the game in addition to the activities on the field afterward.

Any idea how much parking will cost?

Where was Cocky at the Fan Fast? Also Please next year give some notice when an activity is going to end. My little girls stood in line waiting for the bounce house. They were next in line when told they could not go in because the house had to be taken down. My little girls just cried and felt so bad. Not to mention how I felt. A great day up to the end. My 8 year old said thats all she wanted to do was the bounce house but the line was forever so we waited until it started going down. Just pick a cutoff point and let the line finish. Please.
