SPARTA, Wis. (WXOW) – The annual Green Bay Packers Tailgate Tour plans a visit to Sparta.
The team announced the April 10 stop at Sparta Meadowview School starting at 6 p.m. It is one of five stops on the tour around the state in the first part of April.
Proceeds raised at the event will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Sparta.
The team says that due to an earlier start of this year’s offseason program, current players won’t make the trip. There’s plenty of former players on the tour.
Besides Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy, Packer alumni Nick Barnett, Earl Dotson, Ryan Grant, Bernardo Harris, Aaron Kampman and Scott Wells will appear in Sparta.
Each tailgate party includes food, giveaways, Q&A sessions, and autographs. Tailgate tickets are $40 each.
