Fans praise Titletown Gameday Live's family-friendly atmosphere

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Green Bay Packers are back and all the tailgating traditions are back.

A new tradition started Thursday with activities for the whole family at the Titletown District.

Titletown Gameday Live premiered Thursday morning. The Titletown lots opened at 7 a.m. to fans. The district has a playground and mini-football field for the kids. There's a park for the whole family. Food and beverages are being served.

"What I like about it is that it is really kid-friendly. It's also adult-friendly. You can have your beverage, you can have your kids at the playground where we've been going, so I think it's going to be a really big hit," says Andy Leonard of Ohio.

Fans can also enjoy a spectacular view of Lambeau Field from the top of Ariens Hill.

"Well we've been playing Foosball, we've played ping-pong. And the kids have been playing with the football. And we went up Ariens Hill and saw the sights. It was great. A beautiful view. We love Green Bay," says Diane Rems of Fox Lake.

The fans we spoke with raved about the Titletown District.

"Nothing short of first class. Everything about it is very, very nice. Upscale, relaxing nice place to be, hang out, bring the kids," sad Leroy Vanven Avond.

Packers Tiitletown Programs Manager Jackie Krutz added, "This is a great place to let your kids get some energy out before they sit for the game so you know most of the other traditional tail-gating, pre-game festivities are a little bit different so ours kind of has that unique take of everything else."

At 3 p.m., the band Star Six Nine took the stage for a free concert.

Titletown Gameday Live will offer the same opportunity for fans during all home games this season. Click here for a list of bands that will perform this season.

Remember, no tailgating is allowed in the Titletown District parking area. Also, leave the lawn chairs, coolers and glass bottles at home.
