If you have basketball fans in your family, you know that Raleigh’s PNC Arena will be home to the first and second rounds of the NCAA Men’s College Basketball tournament this year. In anticipation of the tournament, grocery retailer Kroger Co. will be hosting free tailgate-style celebrations March 16-19, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. in the parking lots of select stores in Raleigh and Durham.

Designed to celebrate March madness, the “March to Savings” events will invite basketball fans to take their best shot at scoring a bucket, pose at the photo station to create a personalized retro basketball card, enjoy food samples, snag exclusive coupons and spin the prize wheel for a chance to win one of several premium giveaways — including game tickets. (Note that tickets will only be given away at events on March 16 and March 18.) Here’s when and where you can join in the “March to Savings” fun.
