If you are the host of a pre or post-game tailgating party at Ralph Wilson Stadium, some decorations and fun items to have on hand include red and blue colored wigs, the Bills' team colors, or if you can't find any appropriate wigs, purchase red and blue colored hair spray dye instead. In addition, make or buy a banner proclaiming your love for the Buffalo Bills and hang it along one side of your vehicle. Depending on whom the Bills are playing on the day of your tailgate bash, buy a plain and draw the opposing team's logo on the piñata. Hopefully, everyone will have a chance at smacking the piñata before it breaks.

Tailgating Party Activities

Besides rooting for your favorite football team and discussing the greatness of the Buffalo Bills, you and your guests can also play games such as Frisbee, cards, toss the football, bean bag toss, compete in football trivia challenges, washer toss and ladder golf.

When only adults are attending the party, beer pong is another game option. The game involves teams tossing a ping-pong ball into regular-sized drinking cups at the end of a table. Those who successfully hit all of the cups are the winners and do not have to take shots of beer. You can purchase simple to carry and lightweight genuine beer pong tables meant for tailgating parties from various online party sites.
