ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WBEN) - Emily Ryan-Radder and her husband Timothy have been tailgaiting at Bills games for 12 years. It is a pretty special place for them. 

"For us it's a chance to hang out with our friends and actually in 2009 we got married in the parking lot," Emily Radder said.

They tailgate in the Biergarten Restaurant parking lot. They are always coming up with different themes throughout the year.

"We have sausage fest, we have october fest," Emily Radder said. "He dresses up as Santa Claus and I dress up as Mrs. Claus."

The Radder's says they typically get about 30-40 people at their tailgates and once had over a 100 for their thanksgiving rave. But do not expect anyone to be jumping through any tables. 

"You can see our tailgate is in fact intact," Radder said. "We try to be a positive voice that you don't have to come out with a case of beer and bag of doritos for your five friends. We see some kids that aren't doing so well, we try to feed them."

For the Radders it is about sharing food and good times with friends and family.
