KUSA - Thousands of fans will be packing into Sports Authority Field for the annual Rocky Mountain Showdown on Sunday.
But before they do, there's a good chance there's going to be some serious tailgating.
McGuckin Hardware was in the 9NEWS Backyard Saturday morning to talk about staying green while tailgating. Ideas range from solar powered lights, canning your own salsa and quiet generators.
You can even join in on their party on Sept. 7 from 2 to 5 p.m. at their store in Boulder.
