INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The Indianapolis Colts announced this year’s Colts Tailgate finalists.

The year’s finalists are Hession Freedom Farm Tailgate and Unsupervised Chaos. The two finalists were selected from over 100 entries and six semi-finalists.

Thanks to the Indiana Soybean Alliance’s involvement with the “Best Colts Tailgate Contest,” we can recognize these enthusiastic fans for their creativity and amazing tailgate displays they put on at every Colts home game,” said Matt Godbout, Colts Senior Vice President of Business Development.

The grand prize winner will receive the following:

  • $100 in cash
  • $500 Pro Shop gift card
  • Team autographed item
  • Prime tailgating spot in 2017
  • Their name will be placed on the Colts Tailgate of the Year Trophy

The second place winner will receive a $300 Pro Shop gift card.

On Dec. 11, the finalists will set up their tailgate in Touchdown Town before the Houston game.

Judging will begin at 9 a.m. The winner will be announced shortly after.
