Fans can select their seats Tuesday at Purple Palooza

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – Fans will have a new option Tuesday at Tennessee Tech’s second annual Purple Palooza showcasing the women’s and men’s basketball teams.

Looking ahead to the 2013-14 season, fans can select their seats and purchase season tickets on the spot during the evening’s festivities. All seats in sections C, D, E and L that are still available for purchase will be marked with a special tag.

Fans can select the seats they like for watching Golden Eagle basketball, and take the tag from the seat directly to the ticket office to purchase them for the entire season.

Purple Palooza is expanding to include trick-or-treating for all participants from 6-7 p.m. Community groups and student organizations will set up decorated booths around the concourse where kids can visit for treats in the hour leading up to the basketball event.

Any group interested in manning a booth can still get space by contacting Leveda Birdwell in the Marketing Department at 931-372-3940. There is no charge for a booth.

Admission is free for Purple Palooza, which will feature a scrimmage by each team, introductions of the players and staffs by head coaches Jim Davis and Steve Payne, plus a three-point and dunk contest. Several drawings will be held for prizes, and winner will be awarded for best costumes and best-decorated booths.

For more information, or to reserve a booth, please call the Athletics Ticket Office at 931-372-3940.
