For many sports fans, it's the biggest day of the year. The one they've been waiting for.

This evening, the Kansas City Chiefs will meet the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas for Super Bowl LVIII.

Kickoff is set fr 5:30 pm, but the festivities will begin hours earlier for most fans. Because if there's one thing just as important as the game on Super Bow Sunday, it's the food and fun.

All over Texarkana and across the U.S. friends and family will be firing up the grill and getting ready for the big game. Others will be at their favorite watering hole. Bars and restaurants offer all sorts of special deals to compete for the crowds.

It's not just the action of the field. There is always a big halftime show, this year featuring Usher. And advertisers spend big bucks to create clever TV commercial they hope will go viral.

Fans of pop sensation Taylor Swift will catch a few glimpses of her this year as she cheers on boyfriend Travis Kelce, who plays for the Chiefs, from the stands. Others won't be so thrilled, but if you are among them, don't let it spoil your fun. Celebrity sightings have always been a part of the broadcast.

Super Bowl Sunday is a day Americans can gather together for a great time and a great game. One where the only difference that matters is which team you are rooting for.

Enjoy the game.
