CHICAGO – With the postseason beginning and the Cubs gearing up to #FlyTheW once more, it’s officially “W season” in Wrigleyville! And what better place for fans to celebrate than a pop-up ‘W’ville event right next to Wrigley Field, with a number of free games, family-friendly entertainment, W-themed giveaways and opportunities to win 2017 Cubs postseason tickets.
Fans can visit the Park at Wrigley tomorrow, October 3, from 3-7 p.m. to participate, then view the American League Wild Card game inside the Budweiser Brickhouse Tavern or in the Lucky Dorr Patio & Tap.
Fans visiting ‘W’ville can pick up a number of complimentary giveaways to celebrate the Cubs in the postseason for the third consecutive season. A giveaway tent will include free #FlyTheW cardboard posters, stickers, temporary tattoos, rally towels from American Airlines and W stencils provided by Benjamin Moore. CBS Radio Chicago will host a number of giveaway opportunities and games as well.
Fans also can take a swing for a chance at free 2017 Cubs postseason tickets in a fun and fast-paced whiffle ball challenge. With one swing of the bat, participating fans can take aim at a large W Flag target in the lawn area. Those who hit the ball directly into the cut-out “W” will receive a pair of free tickets to a 2017 postseason game at Wrigley Field. Fans who hit the target with a fly ball but don’t make it into the “W” will receive a complimentary W Flag or choice from a selection of other available prizes.
A number of family-friendly games and activities will be available for fans of all ages. Guests can test their arm at an inflatable speed pitch station or take some warm-up swings at an inflatable whiffle ball station. A balloon artist, face painter and glitter temporary tattoo artist will be on hand to entertain children, while a caricature artist will provide W-themed drawings of fans. Guests can play oversized games, bags with custom #FlyTheW boards, an RBI Baseball gaming station and even control miniature Cubs robots courtesy of the Museum of Science and Industry’s Robot Revolution Exhibit.
A pop-up “W Shop” next to the Cubs Store will have a number of W-themed items, flags and apparel for sale. Guests also can purchase food and non-alcoholic beverages from the food trucks and concession stands on-site.
Immediately following the conclusion of ‘W’ville, guests can visit the Budweiser Brickhouse Tavern or Lucky Dorr Patio & Tap to watch the American League Wild Card and participate in special programming and giveaways hosted by each location.
