Packers fans are invited to bring the spirit of Green Bay to Minnesota a day early with a Packers Everywhere pep rally at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 17.
The festivities will take place at The Pourhouse, located at 10 S. 5th St., Minneapolis.
Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy will take part in the pre-gameday excitement by greeting fans and participating in a Q-and-A session with Packers analyst Larry McCarren. Packers alumni Jim Carter and Craig Newsome will attend to socialize with fans, sign autographs and share their thoughts on the next day's game against the Vikings.
A roundtable discussion with Packers.com's Mike Spofford and Wes Hodkiewicz will conclude the event. Attendees at the event also will have opportunities to win autographed raffle prizes and giveaways.
Food and drink specials will be offered at the event, and parking is available nearby at the Midtown parking garage in the Lumber Exchange Building attached to the venue.
Fans planning to attend the rally are encouraged to sign up in advance for the raffle to have a chance to win autographed Packers items such as a Eddie Lacy-signed helmet, Randall Cobb-signed jersey, Julius Peppers-signed football and other prizes.
To register for the raffle, fans should visit http://pckrs.com/peprally and be sure to have their vouchers scanned at the door to complete their raffle entry. Entrants must be present at the rally to win, and advance raffle signup does not guarantee rally admission.
Packers Everywhere, through its website packerseverywhere.com, enables Packers fans to find official Packers establishments around the world where they can watch games with fellow fans. Other pep rallies at away games this season are set for the weekends of the Atlanta and Tennessee games.
