More greats coming to Fan Fest

Pro Football Hall of Famer Paul Hornung, fan favorite Gilbert Brown and current sack master Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila will be in attendance at Packers Fan Fest.<p>

The first annual Packers Fan Fest, scheduled for March 11-13, is a three-day celebration of Packers football that will allow fans the chance to get up close and personal with their favorite Packers players, past and present, as well as coaching staff and front office personnel.

In addition to Hornung, Brown and Gbaja-Biamila, six more past and present Packers were added to the lineup: Kevin Barry, Najeh Davenport, Lynn Dickey, Larry McCarren, Doug Pederson and Joey Thomas. They join Bart Starr, Brett Favre, Ron Wolf and Javon Walker, who were previously announced.

The team announced that Packers President and CEO Bob Harlan will take part in the event as well.

Among the activities to take place in the Lambeau Field Atrium are question-and-answer sessions, followed by autograph and photo opportunities, with some of the greatest players in club history. Due to time constraints and anticipated demand, autograph and photo sessions with certain players will be conducted via random drawing. A Sunday tour of the Packers' football facilities, including the locker room, is slated as well.

In addition to numerous football-related activities, Packers Fan Fest also will feature a special kids area that will include inflatable units, such as "Stadium Bounce," plus the popular obstacle course known as "Rookie Camp," as well as face-painting and tattoos. Another attraction for fans 12-and-under will be a kids-only autograph table featuring a Packers player for a signing session. Tickets, priced at $55 and good for all three days of the event, will go on sale Feb. 9, in person through the Packers ticket office, and via telephone at a number to be announced next week. A $5 per-order handling and mailing fee will be charged as well. The ticket includes admission to the Packers Hall of Fame during the event. Children 3-and-under are free.

A portion of the proceeds will go to charity through the Green Bay Packers Foundation.

Further details, including more player appearances and additional event highlights, will be announced in the coming weeks.
