The Tundra Tailgate Zone is taking shape. The giant fan-friendly hangout will soon be a place for people to experience the football atmosphere on game days and during training camp.
"It's like putting up a building," explained Kandi Goltz, Packers Manager of Game & Fan Development. "There is heating and cooling and all kinds of elements that go on in there."
Goltz said work is a little behind schedule because of the uncertainty with the lockout.
"It's going to take a couple weeks to have it all up and running," she said. "but it will be operating for Family Night. So we're ready for that."
The packers are expecting around 5,000 fans to flock to the first training camp practices this weekend.
"I've always wanted to see Lambeau," said Jacob Cotter, a fan from Illinois. "I'm a big packers fans."
And area business owners are ready for the rush.
"They always schedule the Shareholders Meeting right before camp," said Mike Walters, Manager of The Jersey Store. "So that 4 day stretch is always phenomenal for us in terms of sales, and the first day of camp is always big no matter what."
It's an exciting start to what fans hope is another championship run.
"We've been watching the NFL Network and all the free agent signings and trades and stuff," commented John Sullivan, a fan from Chicago. "So it's back to football."
The Lambeau 5K race is also happening Saturday. More than 5,000 runners are signed up to trek through Ashwaubenon and eventually through the players tunnel inside the stadium.
