EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Some of the biggest competition surrounding the Super Bowl will be among New Jersey towns for a slice of the estimated half-billion dollars in economic activity expected to be generated by the game.
Officials from East Rutherford and Secaucus are set to announce their plans on Monday.
East Rutherford is planning a large tailgate party that will include music, food and games and will take place on Super Bowl Sunday in the hours leading up to the game.
Secaucus is planning a Winter Blast that will feature food trucks, a beer garden and a pro hockey game.
The Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium will be the first played outdoors at a cold-weather location.
About 400,000 people are expected to visit the New York-New Jersey area for the game.
