It should be an interesting Halloween in and around Birmingham, AL this year. The Magic City Classic is less than 90 days away and it is the largest single sporting event held in the city every year. Last year’s attendance was more than 69,000 – and that only represents those who made their way inside Legion Field.
This year the crowds associated with the annual battle on the gridiron between Alabama A&M and Alabama State will be competing with another pair of large scale events for weekend sports coverage (and hotel rooms) – the Mountain Dew 250 and the Amp Energy 500, both taking place at the Talladega Superspeedway. Fans of both events may want to start looking into hotel rooms as soon as possible – or at least plan for a weekend of tailgating madness.
