Necessities for a tailgating party

Fall, football, and tailgating: as American as apple pie. Make sure you’re ready for football season so you’re not scrambling to organize your tailgate party at the last minute. Here’s a list to get you started.


A tailgate party is all fun and games, until it gets just too dang hot because it’s fall in Arkansas! A canopy will give you some much-needed shade to help you stay cool. It will also provide some cover in case it starts to rain.

Food + Drink + Cooler

You don’t have to buy a brand-new Yeti (but you could!), but you do need a big cooler or two. You’ll put everything in here: ice, water, sodas, hot dogs, hamburgers, mustard — you name it!

Grill + Grillin’ Supplies

When you pull the hot dogs out of the cooler, you’ll want to heat them up somehow. You could hook a microwave up to your truck somehow, but the easier (and tastier) option is to bring a grill. Don’t forget the charcoal or propane and your grillmaster tools.

Tailgate of an F-150

Sure, you can have a tailgate party out of the trunk of your hatchback, but it’s just better if you have an actual truck’s tailgate.

Whether you’re working hard or playing hard, you need a truck that can keep up, like the Ford F-150, the best-selling truck in America for the last 39 years. In addition to providing the namesake tailgate, the Ford F-150 has plenty of bed space to hold all of your tailgating supplies. Not to mention, this is the safest F-150 yet. The 2017 Ford F-150 received a five star safety rating, so you can breathe easy while you’re driving to the big game.

McLarty will beat any price you bring them from a competitor!

When you’re ready for a new American-made vehicle, look no further than McLarty Ford, the #1 Ford Dealer in Arkansas. For the month of August, get up to $4,750 cashback on select 2017 Ford F-150 with 0.0% APR financing for 60 months for qualified buyers.
