Cal U will kick off the 2010 home football season with its fifth annual Party in the Park and a performance by the nationally known rock band The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.

The party gets started at noon Sept. 18 in Roadman Park, on Cal U's south campus.

A Welcome Back Picnic hosted by University President Angelo Armenti, Jr., a performance by Uniontown-based band Stereotype and a live broadcast by radio station The X all begin at noon, with music by the Pittsburgh-based band Gene the Werewolf at 1 p.m.

An alumni tailgate party begins at 1:30 p.m. under the Vulcan Huddle tent near Adamson Stadium.

The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus will perform from 2-3:20 p.m. The first of the group's three albums, "Don't You Fake It," was certified gold in late November 2006. Recent albums include "Lonely Road" and "The Hell or High Water."

The party concludes with a 3:30 p.m. football game at Adamson Stadium's Hepner-Bailey Field, where the nationally ranked Cal U Vulcans take on their PSAC-East rival, East Stroudsburg University. 

Cal U students, faculty and staff may attend the Party in the Park free with a valid CalCard. Picnic guests pay $6.35 for adults, $3.75 for children ages 7 and younger.

Current Cal U students with valid CalCards may attend the football game at no charge. Game tickets are available at the gate. Cost is $8 for general admission seating, $5 for students who do not attend Cal U.
