THE FLATS - Georgia Tech's annual spring football game, which attracted nearly 20,000 fans last year, has evolved into a day-long roster of activities.

Friday Night on the Flats, presented by CBC National Bank, begins at 3 p.m. when the nationally-ranked Georgia Tech baseball team hosts NC State at Russ Chandler Stadium. At 5:30 p.m., Wreckfest opens on Techwood Drive - the street East of Bobby DoddStadium -- with concessions, inflatables for the kids, official GT merchandizing and a concert by Southside of the Tracks.

The football game kicks-off at 7:30 p.m. on Grant Field. Immediately following the abbreviated game there will be fireworks (presented by Atlantic Station) and a post-game concert.

Admission to Wreckfest, the game, fireworks and concerts is free. Tickets to Friday's baseball game are $4.

"Friday Night on the Flats is an event that everyone can enjoy," Georgia Tech associate athletic director Rick Thorpe said. "With pre-game activities for the kids and the fireworks, it's a perfect spring outing for families. But, with the concerts and the football game, it's also a great event for students and Yellow Jacket fans of all ages."

Fans should note that two streets adjacent to Bobby Dodd Stadium - Techwood Drive and Bobby Dodd Way - will be closed to traffic. A list of available parking lots is listed below.

The game offers fans a sneak peek at the 2013 Yellow Jackets, which return 15 starters from a team that played in the ACC Championship Game. Tech has 55 returning letterwinners and 24 freshmen who redshirted last season.

Fans attending the game on Friday night should be aware that no bags will be allowed inside Bobby Dodd Stadium.
