The Super Bowl XLV Champion Green Bay Packers will be hosting their celebration on Tuesday for the city of Green Bay. It's not the typical ticker-tape parade that you'd expect from New York or another big city, though. Here's some of the basic information on Green Bay's celebration if you're interested in either attending or watching:
What: It's being tabbed "Return To Titletown" and it's a non-parade celebration.
Who: Mark Murphy, president and CEO of the Packers, general manager Ted Thompson, head coach Mike McCarthy and some of the Packers.
Tickets: They're five bucks a pop but don't worry this isn't a money grab. The proceeds will be going to Packers Foundation charities.
TV Schedule: The celebration will be broadcast locally on the following stations: WFRV, Green Bay; WTMJ, Milwaukee; WKOW, Madison; WAOW, Wausau/Rhinelander; WXOW, La Crosse; WQOW, Eau Claire; WYOW, Eagle River; and WJMN, Marquette, Mich.
Time: It is scheduled to be from 4:00-5:00 p.m. (CT) on Tuesday. Some schools are letting out early on Tuesday so that kids can attend the event.
Location: The event will be taking place at Lambeau Field.
Okay, so it's not exactly a parade, but close enough. If you're a Packers fan, $5 is pretty affordable if you want to be an out-in-the-cold in person. If not, there's plenty of television options.
I won't be attending or watching, but I'll be there in spirit even though I don't really care for the Packers. We should all be celebrating the fact that the Steelers lost, don't you think?
