The smell of corndogs and pretzels in the air. The roar of the crowd cheering and war-chanting.

The panorama of 82,300 arms chopping in unison. The boom of the Marching Chiefs and the Big 8 firing up the fans, players and coaches alike. This year will be unlike any other with the unveiling of the new Champions Club, and the HD 120’x78’ Jumbotron (Jimbotron?).

Everyone knows about the Friday night Downtown Getdown that takes place from 6p-10p before every home game along Adams St and Jefferson St.

But few realize that just a hop, skip, and a jump down the road in the Kleman Plaza platform, the Friday Night Block Party promises great music, great food, and, always, a good time!

The FNBP 2016 season kicks off on Friday, September 9th from 5p-10p with great bands like Brett Young, Clare Dunn, and Chris Lane to name a few.

These Kleman Plaza FNBP shows are a free event - a gift from FSU to its loyal (and excited!) fans.

Kicking it up a notch toward the end of the season, the Seminoles are having a special “Doak After Dark” edition of the FNBP.

Hosting the event will be Tyler Farr, country radio star Bobby Bones with The Raging Idiots, and Old Dominion on the very field the team will be bringing home the victories all year.

This one is a paid-event with tickets starting at just $20! This is not something that you are going to want to miss.

Get out there and join thousands of  other dedicated Florida State Fans at this family-friendly event that has proven to be the premier tailgate experience!

This Tallahassee home-grown FSU football fanatic will be there and I hope you can make it too!
