Fans will also have the opportunity to participate in the Associated Bank Fan Experience where they will be treated to a unique and engaging activity where they can throw a pass to a Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb simulation and celebrate by striking their own unique touchdown celebration pose. During their touchdown celebration, a photo will be taken with an overlay that includes Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams, and emailed to the fan for social media sharing.
A variety of interactive family activities include pumpkin decorating, pumpkin bowling, face painting, bean bag toss, field goal kick and football toss, and a Lambeau Leap.
Fans are encouraged to bring a basic needs item for children and infants for donation to the Supporting Our Families Together initiative, a partner program of the Brown County United Way.
