Has it been 13 years already? This summer’s annual ritual known as Packers Family Night will again be sponsored by Bellin Health and has been scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 3.
The featured event of the night, an intra-squad scrimmage between the Packers offense and defense, will highlight the evening’s festivities, which begin at 5:30 p.m. The on-field scrimmage will begin at about 7:30 p.m.
Tickets for the event are $10 and will go on sale June 24 at 9 a.m. The tickets may be purchased through Ticketmaster, over the phone or through the Internet – in addition, tickets may be purchased at the Packers ticket office at Lambeau Field. There is no limit in the number of tickets one may buy and all individuals attending the event need a ticket, regardless of age.
