WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Due to pending construction on the John T. Myers Pedestrian Bridge, the popular Boiler Bridge Walk will not take place this season.

It will return in 2015.

For the last four years, every Friday before home games, members of the Purdue football team have met and greeted their fellow citizens of Lafayette and West Lafayette as they walked across the Myers Bridge.

On Friday, the day before this season's opening game against Western Michigan, a spirited team sendoff event will take place from 5:15 to 6 p.m. on the Sally & Bob Weist Plaza between Mackey Arena and Holloway Gymnasium. There will be popcorn, music and interactive games, and Miracles Rehabilitation will provide a promotional item for the Boilermaker players and coaches to give out to fans in attendance. The team will be on hand from 5:30 to 6 p.m.

Any Purdue student who attends this event and is part of the Ross-Ade Brigade or signs up to join Friday will have the opportunity to form the fan tunnel on the field for Saturday's game. Kickoff is noon.

 

 

Also Friday, the Block Party, the volleyball team's boisterous student fan group, will hold its annual call-out for members beginning at 6:30 p.m. on the Weist Plaza. All interested students are welcome to come sign up for $10 and receive free pizza and an official Block Party T-shirt before the Boilermakers take on San Diego at 7:30 p.m.
