Summer Traditions set for Aug. 14

Packers go back in time to early 1900s

The second annual ‘Summer Traditions at Lambeau Field,' celebrating the Green Bay Packers' tradition of family and Training Camp, is set for Sunday, Aug. 14, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

One of four free Packers annual community events, ‘Summer Traditions' is a family event set in the year 1908, when Curly Lambeau was 10 years old. The event will feature exciting activities that children experienced at the turn of the century. ‘Summer Traditions' will take place outside in the northeast corner (Lombardi Ave. and Oneida St.) of the Lambeau Field parking lot.

As guests enter the event, they will pass two large covered wagons and receive ‘Summer Traditions' pinwheels. In addition, Heritage Hill employees will be dressed as if the year was 1908 and mingling with guests. Old-time props and plants will be on display, making for great picture opportunities.

Events slated for the day include three-legged, gunny sack and wheelbarrow races, pie eating contests, a petting zoo, complimentary Breyers ice cream, a sawdust treasure hunt and carving demonstrations. Music and entertainment from the era will be featured as well.

In the event of rain, the races will be replaced with different activities and may be moved into the Lambeau Field Atrium.
