Chippewa Falls (WQOW) — If you’ve been missing the frozen tundra during the off-season, there’s no reason to wait any longer. A piece of Lambeau Field is in Chippewa Falls, taking over the Northern Wisconsin State Fair.
‘Lambeau Field Live’ is a traveling exhibit making it’s away around Wisconsin, in honor of the Green Bay Packers 100th season. If you’ve ever wanted to feel like an NFL player, this is the place to do it. Fans can test out their vertical and broad jump skills or even do their own version of the ‘Lambeau Leap.’
You can also enter into virtual reality to see what your favorite player sees, and even hangout with Packers’ greats like Willie Buchanon. It’s a great experience for all ages, and why Buchanon still believes the green and gold faithful are the best in all of sports.
“Packers fans all over the state are special, it doesn’t matter what city they live in,” says the former cornerback Buchanon, who played for Green Bay from 1972-1978. “They can live in Menomonie, they can live in Wisconsin, Madison, Oshkosh, you know anywhere. And they know their Packers. They are true fans and that’s what we like, that’s what us players like about being a former Packer is the fans. They know us, they love us, and we love them.”
Starting on Friday, former Packers’ running back John Brockington will be at the exhibit to sign autographs and interact with fans. ‘Lambeau Field Live’ will be at the fair for the rest of weekend, and it’s free for fans of all ages.
