According to SGA Vice President Amina Goheer and Chief of Staff Vijay Baharani, this year's event will feature a football toss, live music from Blair bands and face painting.

This week, SGA will be handing out fliers that can be redeemed at the barbecue for free dessert. Other foods offered include hamburgers and hot dogs, which will cost $2 and $1.50 respectively, and Blazers who purchase a hamburger or a hot dog will each receive a ticket for a free soda. Chips and soda will be 50 cents each, and bocca burgers will be offered as a vegetarian alternative to the hamburgers.

SGA Director of School Spirit Francesca Blume, who is overseeing the event, looks at the barbecue as a social gathering for Blazers. According to Blume, this event is a good way to raise school spirit, welcome kids back to Blair and allow for new students to meet one another. "We just want people to have a fun time and get pumped up for the first football game," Blume said.
