10-10 Rule in Effect For Great Idaho Potato Bowl

by



As fans of the San Diego State University Aztecs and the University of New York at Buffalo Bulls gear up for participation in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, which takes place beginning at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 21, the Boise Police Department is making it a little easier for tailgaters to warm their bellies. 

In a press release, the BPD indicated that the 10-10 program, which opens a section of Julia Davis Park to tailgating activities including the consumption of alcohol in opaque containers from 10 a.m.-10 p.m., will be in full effect during the bowl game. 

Apart from Boise State University property, the 10-10 Zone encompasses a section of Julia Davis Park that extends roughly between Broadway Avenue and the Friendship Bridge that crosses the Boise River between Boise State and the park. 

The so-called 10-10 Ordinance was designed to make the boundaries wherein tailgating activities are permitted more intuitive to reduce confusion on Boise State game days, and according to the number of open container violations handed out early in the Boise State Broncos season, the effort has reduced the number of alcohol-related citations cut on game days.
