Break out those Bears jerseys this weekend! Saturday’s Bears Meijer Family Fest is the perfect event for even the tiniest of tacklers.
The fun kicks off at 9:30 a.m. with fun activities outside Soldier Field. The real action begins at 11:35 a.m. when the team begins practice. This year will be a little different, with the last half of practice becoming a full tackle scrimmage, giving families the perfect opportunity to preview the team, says Vice President of Communication Scott Hagel.
Tickets, which range from $8-$12, are available at chicagobears.com/FamilyFest. Hagel recommends arriving early to enjoy the events outside the gates, but most importantly, he recommends bringing sunscreen.
The event also features live music, alumni autographs and giveaways. A youth football demonstration is planned for 10:15 a.m.
“It should be a great day for people that don’t normally get to see the Bears play,” Hagel says.
