Tonight’s the night.

It’s time to catch McPherson Bullpup sports fever with the annual Fall Preview. This includes both McPherson High and McPherson Middle School sports.

The event runs from 3 to 9 p.m. The Buick Drive 4 Your School event starts at 3:00, sponsored by Midway Motors and the MHS Booster Club. The goal is to reach $10,000, so all fans are urged to take a short test drive just north of the stadium so money can be raised for the athletic fund.

Admission to the preview is a free-will donation or a can of non-perishable food for the McPherson County Food Bank. Those who drive in the fund-raiser receive free hot dogs, hamburgers or brats.

Here is the schedule of events:

3:00-9:00 — Drive 4 Your School

5:30-7:30 — McPherson Police Department will be handing out free popcorn at the concession stand

5:00 — MMS football scrimmage; MMS volleyball scrimmage (Sport Center)

5:55 — MMS Cheer squad performs
