Cowboy football fans will get a special treat before Wyoming takes on Cal Poly this Saturday with the first ever Fan Fest. The free celebration will be in the Indoor Practice Facility from 1-3 p.m. on September 15th.

It looks to be a fun event for Wyoming fans of all ages. Kids will have fun with games, face painting and giant inflatables. Each UW sport will have a booth to play games with the kids according to Senior Marketing Coordinator Shelley Heward. For example basketball will be shooting hoops with them, golf will have a mini golf set and soccer will be kicking goals.

UW athletics fans of all sports will have an opportunity to meet and get autographs from the student-athletes as well and check out the “Wyoming Vintage Store” which will be selling official UW athletic gear from years past. Personally, my biggest question and fear about the vintage store has to do with prairie gold.

The Indoor Practice Facility is located on the northwest corner of War Memorial Stadium at the corner of 22nd St and Willett Dr. Entrance into Fan Fest 2012 will be at the southeast corner of the Indoor Practice Facility, and the “Wyoming Vintage Store” will be located right outside that entrance. Kickoff between Wyoming and Cal Poly is set for 4 p.m.
