A fun-filled day and evening awaits Packers fans Saturday, Aug. 4 at 'Packers Family Night, Presented by Bellin Health.'

Stadium gates will open at 5:30 p.m., with practice officially getting underway at 7:30 p.m. The evening will feature a family-focused and game-like atmosphere with use of the video boards and gameday music, and the practice will include 11-on-11 sessions that will include live contact. The night will conclude with a fireworks and laser show.

The event will benefit the Wendy's Wonderful Kids foster care adoption program, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Family Night is a part of the Back to Football campaign, presented by Bellin Health, a campaign that also includes Packers training camp and Packers preseason games.

Parking lots will open at 1:30 p.m. for the event and the cost will be $5, with net proceeds to be donated to the Wendy's Wonderful Kids program. Parking will be limited in Packers-operated lots, but parking is also available in neighboring areas.

The Packers are reminding fans of the NFL's stadium safety policy. No bags or purses will be allowed inside Lambeau Field unless they are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and are no larger than 12" by 6" by 12". Stadium cushions are also not allowed as a part of the policy, however, stadium seats and stadium pads that contain no pockets or zippers and are 18" wide or smaller are allowed. For more information, visit packers.com/carryin.

Attendees are also reminded that PDF or 'Print at Home' tickets have been eliminated; those who purchased Family Night tickets online via Ticketmaster must use mobile tickets to enter the event. Instructions and tutorials on how to use mobile tickets are available at https://www.packers.com/tickets/mobile-ticketing.

Pre-Family Night activities will begin at 1:30 p.m. in the Lambeau Field Atrium and parking lot. The Fan Walkway area will be open from 1:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. along the walkway from Oneida Street to the Oneida Nation Gate, and will feature activities for families and kids to enjoy. The Pick 'N Save Family Night Picnic will take place from 1:30 to 6 p.m. in Lambeau Field's east-side parking lot. Titletown on the west side of Lambeau Field will also offer interactive games and activities for families beginning at 3 p.m.

The Packers will welcome representatives from Wisconsin 4-H as their official community guests. Forty representatives of the organization will make up the Packers Ambassador Line as the players take the field. The representatives will attend the rest of the evening's festivities with the remainder of the group in the stands.

Other on-field activities include four youth NFL FLAG football scrimmages with players from the Northwest Wisconsin Champions League from Eau Claire, Wis., as well as performances by the Green Bay Elite Dance Team, Fusion Athletics All Star Cheer and the Chicago Boyz Acrobatic Team before the practice begins.

The national anthem will be performed by Amelia Gibbons, a 13-year-old student at West De Pere Middle School. Additionally, throughout the practice, fans in the stadium will be featured on the TundraVision, courtesy of the Oshkosh Corporation Fan Cam.

Also featured will be the popular Chili's "Jerseys Off Our Backs" promotion with Packers jerseys – all of which will have been worn by Packers players in the just-completed practice – to be given away in a random drawing. The evening will conclude with the Pick 'N Save Fireworks and Laser Light show.

Attendees are reminded that all individuals, regardless of age, require a ticket for admittance into Lambeau Field. The stadium opens on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. to ticketed guests only, and after 3:30 p.m., fans may not exit and reenter. If fans choose to exit the stadium, they will not be allowed to re-enter for the remainder of the evening.
