Tailgating done right; fans show off their grilling prowess ahead of Panthers game


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WGHP) — Everyone knows a football season isn’t football season without tailgating.

A big part of the Carolina Panthers game day experience in Charlotte is the pre-game tailgate.

From socializing to cheering on Carolina, these Panther faithful know that any good gameday starts with some full bellies.
