Tailgating - How does it work?
You have seen or even participated in the SPORTS events Tailgating
people bring out their best food, best souvenirs, and best beverages
for a GREAT TIME. Most of the time, if not always, everyone is
willing to share with everyone walking by.
If you ask the store Manager at Walmart they might let you set up outside.
Where ever you park your car, if you are going to tailgate
out of a vehicle, ask a manager first if it's ok.
If you are selling on the spot a product you might
need to call your city hall and get a permit. If you are not selling anything
on the spot, you won't need a permit.
