upFront | The Best Thing About September

Tailgating 
By Ryan Randall
For many, September is a cherished time, not because of the change in the weather or leaves (especially if you live in Florida). No, the month is looked forward to by so many because it marks the start of the college football season and the things that come with it.

By Steven Hicks and Lynne Brezina (of the Brevard Cultural Alliance)

Space Coast Water Sports
