Things will look a little different this year due to COVID-19 safety protocols.

DREAM DRIVE AND BIKE RODEO
Packers Training Camp is famous for the tradition in which players and kids ride bikes to practice. NFL COVID-19 protocols prevent players from riding kids’ bikes and interacting directly with children. However, the team will ride Schwinn bicycles to practice and fans will be able to line up along the bike path to watch.
The Packers and Bellin Health are hosting a Bike Rodeo with De Pere Police on Thursday, July 29. Hours are 8:30 a.m. to noon. There will be free bike helmet fittings, a helmet giveaway and safety course. Kids and parents should report to the Oneida Nation Gate.
The Packers and American Family Insurance are holding a DreamDrive From Home charity bike event for fans to pledge to complete miles at their own pace. For each mile, $1 will be donated to We All Rise in Green Bay. It’s an organization that supports the Black community through education, employment opportunities, secure housing, mental health services and more.
LAMBEAU FIELD ATRIUM
The Lambeau Field Atrium is open daily. Visitors can tour the Hall of Fame and stadium, shop at the Pro Shop and eat at 1919 Kitchen & Tap.
The Johnsonville Tailgate Village will offer a limited food and drink menu between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. during the first four days of practice.
Lambeau Field is cashless. If you do not have a credit or debit card or mobile option, there is a cash-to-card station at the stadium.
The Bellin Blitz will be held Saturday, July 31. Family-friendly activities will take place near the Oneida Nation Gate. Hours are 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Families can get freebies and enter to win prizes.
