Purple and gold is taking over Classic Reflections Salon & Spa in Northbridge Mall from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday.

The Minnesota Vikings are sending two or three legendary players, cheerleaders and Viktor the Viking, among others, to promote the team’s stadium drive. The Vikings cannot send current players because of the NFL lockout.

According to salon owner Kari Fjeldberg, the event will feature photo and autograph opportunities as well as prize giveaways. Fjeldberg did not know which legendary Vikings players are to attend.
