HAMMOND – The Louisiana Children's Discovery Center in downtown Hammond will host Southeastern
Louisiana University's Lion Cub Fan Day for the university's littlest fans on Friday,
The event is scheduled from 5 to 6 p.m. and will feature members of the Lions Football Team, Lionettes and cheerleaders who will lead the children present in various activities, including cheer and chant practice, Lion artwork and storytelling with Lion and football themes.
"Every month at the Louisiana Children's Discovery Center we host several fun and educational programs where the children and the adults can learn different things while playing," said Anette Kirylo, executive director. "We are very excited to support and host the Southeastern Lions Cub Fan Day.
"There are not many chances where a child gets an opportunity to interact and be so close to a real football player," she added, "so we are very excited to meet the players and learn from the whole team. It's going to be such a fun time!"
Kirylo said the children will also have the opportunity to take pictures, receive an autograph, play and maybe even have the team show off some of their secret football moves and plays.
Every child will receive a Lion giveaway and posters. Some lucky little Lions will take home special prizes too. Additionally, parents will have the opportunity to save $160 on the purchase of the Family Pack Tickets for the Lion football season. The Family Pack is $200 for two adult and two youth tickets in general admission and select reserved bleacher sections for all six homegames. Thursday, Aug. 29, is the Lion's home opener.
