It should be another active weekend for West Alabama with the Tennessee Vols in Tuscaloosa for a Saturday battle with the Crimson Tide.

A big turnout is expected at the Buddy Powell Pavilion for the "Ale On Wheels" fundraising event from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m.

This year's festivities include live music from Coach Cameron, the Lock 9 Band, and the always crowd-pleasing The Locals also on the schedule.

In addition, food trucks from Pastor's Kitchen, Urban Cookhouse, and Aw Shucks will be on site. Beer and Wine will be supplied by Black Warrior Brewing and Spirits Wine Cellar.

According to hankpoorefoundation.org, the foundation was inspired by Hank Poore, a Tuscaloosa native with cerebral palsy, and was born out of a desire to provide others with the opportunities and experiences that Hank has had, and is built on the ideals of inclusion, engagement, education, and unity.

It will be the third year for the "Ale On Wheels" event in Tuscaloosa.

Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite now.
