I had the chance to attend Family Fest last year and brought along my twin 2-year old daughters. While I would never consider bringing along toddlers to a regular Bears game (I’m a die-hard fan, but I do have limits…), this event was perfect for my kids. We were able to enjoy the music and activities outside the stadium, take our time climbing those famous steps without the hustle and chaos of a normal Sunday, and even made a few laps around the causeway before taking our seats to watch the practice unfold under the lights.

Warning: Strollers are not permitted inside Soldier Field and must be checked at the designated secure stroller parking areas outside

This event is perfect for young families and friends looking to get their “Bears fix” before the preseason begins. I encourage all fans to consider heading over for the event and bringing the kiddos along for the ride.

Buy tickets today before they sell out, as they always do – and mark the calendar now for Ladies Day at Training Camp in Bourbonnais on Wednesday, July 30th.  We’ll see you there!
