The ASU Turkey Day Classic features a host of exciting homecoming festivities and fun for the whole family

Alabama State University's 94th annual Turkey Day Classic (T.D.C.) and Hornet Homecoming celebration is now upon us.

It will include a wide-range of events from the oldest HBCU Classic Football Game in America, to its tradition-laden Turkey Day Classic Parade on Thanksgiving morning in downtown Montgomery, to its invitation-only business and community breakfast (open to news media coverage), an alumni brunch, an inaugural Queens’ Tea and so much more.

Of course, the celebration will culminate on Thanksgiving-Day (Nov. 23), when the ASU Hornets and the Edward Waters Tigers face-off on the gridiron at 2 p.m. at The ASU Stadium.

You and your news consumers will not want to miss a single minute of the action, so make your plans now to cover ASU's Turkey Day Classic from start to finish.
