Grab your squad, represent your favorite team, and enter the Most Spirited Award! Visit the Pat Miller Neighborhood Square between 6pm and 7pm in your most outrageous team gear for judging for Most Spirited Individual and Most Spirited Family/Group. Help your team or school win bragging rights for the MOST SPIRITED by having the most number of people turn out in team colors — we’ll be giving awards in three categories: school (K-12), college team, and pro sports team. Check in at the Pat Miller Neighborhood Square between 6pm and 7:30pm to be counted!
