Free food will be handed out from a 40-foot trailer between Lanett, Alabama and West Point, Georgia.
The Auburn-Georgia game is getting a tasty twist for its 125th anniversary this year. To celebrate one of the South’s oldest college football rivalry on November 11, Chick-fil-A is bringing fans together for a giant tailgate party smack dab on the Georgia-Alabama line.
“To celebrate the historic 125th year game between Auburn and Georgia, Chick-fil-A will be bringing fans of the two schools together for good food and a good game,” Chris Busby of the Chambers County Development Authority said during a recent meeting of the Lanett City Council, according to LaGrange Daily News.
Fans are invited to spend the day at a temporary Chick-fil-A restaurant complete with big-screen TVs on the state line. The Daily News reports that the popular chain will be serving free food from a 40-foot trailer set up on the east side of Highway 29 between Valley Vision Center and Bell’s Collision between Lanett, Alabama and West Point, Georgia. The Auburn side of the trailer will be painted in orange and blue and the Georgia side will be decked out in red and black. A crew will be in town to film the event for a possible commercial, so fans are encouraged to dress in their school’s colors.

“There will be games, entertainment and maybe some friendly competitions between the Georgia and Auburn fans from the two-state area,” Busby reportedly said.
“This is exciting news for our area,” Lanett Mayor, Kyle McCoy told the Daily News. “We’re encouraging everyone to turn out for a day of fun and good food. We enjoy a very good partnership with the City of West Point. Earlier in the day on Saturday, Nov. 11 we are planning on joining them for a Veterans Day program in the city park. We hosted a similar program here in Lanett last year.”
