When The Fighting Irish of The University of Notre Dame play football at "home", tailgating is serious business. While much has been written, filmed and photographed about it, nothing compares to actually experiencing it. The campus is buzzing with pre-game activities but the gem of the tailgating takes place in the Joyce parking lot surrounding the stadium. The amount of individual flag poles is a sight to be seen. A bucket list item for some but for many, it is a tradition to uphold. This photograph is a small detail of "The Irish" showing their dedication to Notre Dame. Joyce South Parking Lot, Notre Dame University, South Bend, Indiana.
