'Family Night,' now in its ninth year, will feature an intra-squad scrimmage between the Packers' offense and defense. Evening activities get underway in the stadium at 5:30 p.m., followed by on-field football drills at 6:30 and the scrimmage at approximately 7:30.
Included in the evening's activities, per custom, will be the popular Chili's "Jerseys Off Our Backs" promotion with approximately 20 jerseys – all of which will have been worn by Packers players in the just-completed scrimmage – to be given away in a random drawing, other entertainment, the Copps–Pick 'N Save Family Night Picnic and the spectacular Copps–Pick 'N Save Fireworks Show.
The Kemps Packers Experience returns this year featuring expanded offerings to enhance the activities. Hundreds of kids enjoyed it last season in its inaugural year at 'Family Night.' The evening will feature other expanded activities for the younger fans, including sidewalk chalk and face painting. Also, the fireworks show will be bigger and better than ever as the Packers celebrate the organization's 90th birthday.
Parking for the event will be $5, with net proceeds to be donated to the Wendy's Wonderful Kids Program.
For fans not attending the event, it will be televised in Green Bay on WLUK-TV FOX 11, as well as on WITI-TV in Milwaukee, WMSN-TV in Madison, WFXS-TV in Wausau and WLAX-TV in La Crosse. Hosted by Drew Smith and other members of the Fox 11 sports and news staffs, the live broadcast will start at 6:30 p.m.
