The Arizona Cardinals will have their annual Fan Fest and for the first time it will be at University of Phoenix Stadium. It will be next Wednesday, June 13 from 5:30-8:30 and booth entry and parking are free.
The parking lots open at 4:30.
Here are some key pointers shared by the team:
STADIUM ENTRY: Stadium gates will open at 5:30 p.m. Fans should enter through Gate 3 on the east side of the stadium. In accordance with current NFL security guidelines, all fans will be subject to screening prior to entry including an inspection of all items brought inside the stadium.
PRACTICE: Fans will have their first opportunity to see the 2012 Cardinals in person when the team takes the field for practice from 6:45-8:30 p.m.
AUTOGRAPH SESSION: The children's autograph session will take place prior to practice from 6:15-6:40 p.m. and is open only to kids 12 years of age and younger. Because of time constraints, there will be a one item per child limit and no posed photos will be permitted. In order to provide a fair and safe experience, a random wristband system will be used to determine the section of the autograph area a child can visit. Unlike a first-come, first served line, the random wristbands eliminate the need to show up hours in advance of the event. Kids planning to take part in the autograph session are encouraged to arrive no later than 5:30 p.m. More detailed information will be available on the autograph/roster card that all fans will receive upon entry at the stadium.
FAN ACTIVITIES: Cardinals Cheerleaders will perform prior to practice and team mascot Big Red will be in attendance. Photo booth locations and a social media lounge will also be provided for Cardinals fans. Cardinals historical merchandise, which includes autographed items, will be available for purchase to benefit Cardinals Charities.
KIDS ZONE: A kids zone featuring an inflatable quarterback toss, an inflatable obstacle course and two interactive football stations will be offered at the south end of the stadium. On hand to entertain will also be face painters and balloon twisters.
