Going out for families


Chicago Parent Staff


Chicago Bears tickets can be tough—and expensive—to get, but there’s a cheaper way to take kids to see Chicago’s football players. The Chicago Bears Family Day, set for 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Aug. 8, gives families a sneak peek at the team as they run through a practice at Soldier Field.

While Family Day starts with games and entertainment outside the stadium, the real action begins at noon. With lots of fanfare—players run through a Bears’ head while mini-fireworks light their way—the team begins a regular practice. Kids can get an up-close look at some of their favorite players. Be aware, though, that this is a practice, so unless your very young children are die-hard fans, the drills may not hold their interest.

Tickets, available at www.ticketmaster.com, are $7, kids under 32 inches are free. Book four or more tickets before Aug. 6 and pay $6 each. Parking is available at Soldier Field’s three lots. Make it easy on yourself and buy parking online.
