One of the new attractions at Lambeau Field this season is a 13,000 square-foot tailgate area.

The Johnsonville Tailgate Village has room for 500 people, a live stage for music, and big screen TVs.

It's located right outside the Oneida Nation Gate. The Green Bay Packers announced the addition in October.

The idea was to create a centrally located spot for fans to gather on game day. It's free to all fans.
"I think it's really cool being able to come to a place like this, hang out with all the other Packer Backers, just have a good time before the game starts," said Brad Hicks, a life-long Packers fan who visited from Upper Michigan.
