Packers, fans celebrate 100 years

GREEN BAY (WKOW) — It wasn’t even game day, but thousands of people put on their green and gold and headed to Lambeau Field on Sunday.

The Packers celebrated their 100 birthday with a free event.

The event was so popular, the line from the Lambeau Field Atrium wrapped around the outside of the stadium.

Some waited for more than an hour to take a piece of the field home with them in the form of a seed packet — the same seed that grows into grass at Lambeau.

“I’m probably going to plant it in a pot they’re grass seeds, I don’t want to put them in the lawn they’ll get mixed up and if we ever move – it’s got to be a pot, said Liz Hammetter, a fan from Milwaukee.

Those who didn’t get a free seed packet can buy one at the Pro Shop for $5. Money raised goes to the American Red Cross.

Besides the seed, people also could get some free gear and food. The Packers screened the Legacy documentary, which outlines the first decade of the team’s history.
