It is with great pleasure that the City of Corsicana welcomes the teams and fans from Southern Arkansas University and Eastern New Mexico University to the 2019 Heritage Bowl at Tiger Stadium this Saturday, Dec. 7.
This Bowl showcases Corsicana’s Texas football pride and the excellent Tiger Stadium facility. This year, the game will be broadcast to more than 20 million households.
While the teams are here, some players will participate in the “High Five Friday” at Corsicana ISD campuses and on Friday afternoon, the City will host a Downtown Pep Rally at the Christmas Tree at 4:30 p.m. We encourage everyone to come out, support the event and enjoy the football fever.
The game is Saturday at noon, but gates open at 9 a.m. for some fun football fanatic tailgate events. Make it a whole day by attending early, enjoying the game, having a meal around town and then enjoy the annual Christmas Parade celebration at 6 p.m. throughout Downtown.
The City greatly appreciates the Heritage Bowl Committee, the Corsicana Visitors’ Bureau and the Corsicana Main Street Program for their efforts to provide great hospitality for the game. I also want to acknowledge all the volunteers who worked all year to make this possible, and the Bowl’s major sponsors, Community National Bank & Trust of Texas and Atmos Energy.
I hope to see you Friday afternoon at the Pep Rally, and on Saturday all around town.
