Kara's Party Ideas Ultimate VW Bus Football Tailgate Party! | Kara's Party Ideas

Awesome Tailgating Party in the back of a VW Bus by Kara's Party Ideas | Kara Allen for KFC. The best tailgate party ever!

I was beyond excited to plan the ultimate tailgate party last month in partnership with KFC!

Aren’t tailgating parties the best?! We had so much fun with this! There’s nothing better than getting pumped up for a game with friends and family…all while eating the most tasty food out of the back of your vehicle!

When it comes to tailgating, KFC is THE best! Their $10 Chicken Share is perfect for any party or gathering, big or small!

The folks at KFC said it best…”Chicken is better when it is shared. It’s a scientific fact, but don’t look it up. So grab a friend and pick up a $10 Chicken Share. You can share either nine Extra Crispy™ tenders, six pieces of chicken, a lot of Popcorn Nuggets, or twelve Hot Wings. That’s four ways you can bond! Holy sharing!”

But that’s not it! KFC is GIVING AWAY a $200 KFC gift card to help you throw the ultimate tailgating party of your own! Enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post! {Giveaway closed}
