The party will also feature a program hosted by Larry McCarren from noon to 1:30 p.m. The program will include appearances and autographs by Packers alumni Antonio Freeman, Jim Grabowski, LeRoy Butler, Mark Chmura and Derrick Mayes, as well as other prize raffles and fan giveaways.
The Saturday party is free to the public and space will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, with activities offered from 11 a.m. until the draft concludes. A $5 limited party menu will be offered and all tap beer will be $4 during the event.
