Kids outnumber adults at Packers family night

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers family night is the one game a year where kids outnumber adults at Lambeau Field. 

The youngest fan we found at this year's event? Just three-months old. Needless to say, lessons on being a Packers fan start at birth. 
 
We found children of all ages reveling in the green and gold Saturday night. Some of the luckiest, were in the front row.
 
"There are no words to describe the excitement of getting to sit here," says Geanie Gagner, who brought her grandchildren to Packers Family Night. "If you're a Packers fan, this is where you want to be. It's truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sit in these seats. We are so lucky to have randomly got these!"
During the regular season, two of her front-row seats in the end zone go for about $600. But she, and all the other families here, got each Family Night ticket for $10.
 
"You can't beat that," says Denise Luby, who brought her son and daughter to enjoy the Packers practice. "You can't go anywhere for that and have this great of an experience."
 
"It's unbelievable," says local dad, Jeremy Clark. "For these kids, these guys are their idols. And they're basically right in their lap."
