WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The first Boiler Bridge Walk of the 2013 Purdue football season is set for Friday.

For the fourth straight year, every Friday before home games, members of the Purdue football team meet and greet their fellow citizens of Lafayette and West Lafayette as they walk across the John T. Myers Pedestrian Bridge.

Fans of all ages are invited to join Purdue Pete, the spirit squad, Boilermaker Special and community leaders.

The team is dropped off near the Sonya L. Margerum Fountain on the West Lafayette side of the bridge and walk across to Riehle Plaza. Team members hand out giveaway items each week.

Members of the West Side flag football program will be in attendance and lead the Boilermakers across the Myers Bridge.

This week's sponsors are Bruno's, which supplied the team picture cards that the players and coaches will give out, Cold Stone Creamery, which will hand out ice cream, and the Lafayette/West Lafayette NAACP branch, which will provide water.

The Boiler Bridge Walk gets under way when the team arrives around 5:40 p.m., but fans should arrive early to get a good spot on the Myers Bridge.

Kickoff for the home opener against Indiana State on Saturday is noon ET, and tickets are available. Click here for more information or here to purchase online.
