What better way to celebrate day three of the 2017 NFL Draft than with a few of your favorite Chargers?
On Saturday, April 29, Chargers fans are invited to come to StubHub Center for **DraftFest 2017**. The team will also celebrate Carson Community Day with Carson Mayor Albert Robles. Carson community leaders and residents will join the festivities.
"It will really be our first time at StubHub with fans," Philip Rivers said. "Being (at the stadium) for an L.A. Chargers event will be very exciting."
The event will mark the first official public appearance for the Chargers' first-round pick from the 2017 NFL Draft.
Current Chargers Hunter Henry, Branden Oliver, Derek Watt, Craig Mager and Adrian Phillips will be joining Rivers and the first-round pick. Notable alumni including five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Anthony Miller and three-time Pro Bowl special teams standout Kassim Osgood are also slated to attend.
"It's going to be a lot of fun," said Hunter Henry. "It's going to be crazy. A lot of guys are going and we can't wait to hang out with the fans this year. It's going to be my first time at StubHub so I'm looking forward to seeing where we're going to play."
"It'll be a good event for us to mingle with the fans for the first time for us in L.A.," added Derek Watt. "I'm looking forward to getting the first glimpse of where we'll be in a couple months."
Fans will be able to take photos and receive autographs from the players in attendance. Live draft coverage will also be broadcast on screens throughout the venue so you won't miss a moment of action from rounds four through seven.
The youngest fans in attendance can participate in NFL Play60 games. All fans are able to purchase Chargers gear at several locations throughout the stadium. You better come hungry because StubHub Center's concessionaire, Levy Foods, will offer discounted fare to Chargers fans in attendance.
"We're excited about the move and this is the first time seeing the stadium for a lot of us," Henry added. "We'll be in the stadium with fans and the first-round draft, pick so come out!"
Gates open at 8 a.m. and the free event runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Parking is complimentary and fans are encouraged to park in lots 10, 11 and 12.
