Mayor Linda Gorton announces Blue-White Day in Lexington to celebrate UK Football

If you live in Lexington and regularly wear clothing with a wide range of colors and shades, be sure to leave any non-blue or white garments in the closet over the next two days.

Mayor’s orders.

According to Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton, Friday and Saturday of this week have been officially declared Blue-White Day(s) to celebrate Kentucky football’s historic 2018 season and the beginning of yet another promising year under head coach Mark Stoops.

Friday, August 30 is College Colors Day throughout the nation and Kentucky opens the season against Toledo on Saturday at noon. Instead of choosing just one day to celebrate, Gorton announced that those in the Lexington area are encouraged to wear blue or white on both Friday and Saturday to support the Wildcats.

“Now, therefore, I, Linda Gorton, Mayor of Lexington, do hereby declare August 30-31, 2019, Blue – White Day in Lexington, and encourage every member of the Big Blue Nation to wear their blue and white on Friday and Saturday to support the Cats!”

Here was the official announcement:

Can’t say no to that, right?

While we’re on the topic, the seat map over at Ticketmaster showing all of the available tickets for Kentucky’s season-opener indicates they are still quite a ways away from even flirting with a sell-out.

Tickets are as low as $24.00 on Ticketmaster (found here) and are the same price with our great friends at Guy on the Corner Tickets (found here). GOTC also has parking passes as low as $29 available on the site, as well.

Make sure you wear blue and white over the next two days, and more specifically, let’s make it happen at a jam-packed Kroger Field on Saturday at noon.

Go Cats.

    Well that $29 parking pass ends up being over $58 after the $4 service charge and the $25 fee just to email it to me.

    Hey Mayor!

    Have the piles of garbage and debris picked up on Westwood Drive, one block from Kroger field. It is literally blocking the sidewalks and there will be 10,000 people walking to and from the stadium
