Ben Franklin Parkway Getting Set for 2017 NFL Draft
Philadelphia Ben Franklin Parkway will host the 2017 NFL Draft on April 27th- 29th. The last time Philadelphia was chosen was 57 years ago. This will be the first time ever the NFL Draft will be held outdoors. It will be hosted completely outdoors for 3 consecutive days. Some say this could be a recipe for disaster as far as weather is concerned. Without an alternative plan, I could understand the cause for concern. Hopefully weather will not come into play & fans can enjoy the “NFL Fan Experience” in an open air setting on the steps of The Philadelphia Art Museum and The Franklin Institute.
Admission will be FREE for 3 days. Fans will be able to participate in festivities that will span the half mile stretch of the Ben Franklin Parkway. Fans will be able to experience immersive games, autograph signing sessions, virtual reality experiences, rides for children and tons more. This will be the largest draft party the NFL has ever thrown… Kudos to Philly!
