GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - A Green Bay tradition that pumps fans up for the coming season continued Monday with the painting of the Original Packers Fence.
Each year, a new slogan is painted on the fence on Shadow Lane, across from Lambeau Field.
The 2017 slogan: "We are the Pack, We are Winners."
The tradition dates back to 1984 with the original owners of the home. It was carried on by current owner Friedrich Harrsch.
"We wanted to include the entire team, not single out individual players," says Pete Harrsch, Friedrich's relative.
The fence is recognized as an historical site in the city of Green Bay.
