The Pro Football Hall of Fame is hitting the road this fall. The Pro Football Hall of Fame tour, “Honor the Heroes,” is being touted as a “family-oriented interactive experience”, bringing some of the game’s greats and artifacts from the Hall of Fame’s collection to fans across the country.
At least four Hall of Famers will be in attendance at each stop on the tour. Class of 2015 enshrinees Tim Brown and Charles Haley, along with other football greats like Jim Brown, Warren Moon, Joe Greene, Franco Harris, Fran Tarkenton, James Lofton and Randall McDaniel are just a few of those taking part. There was no immediate word on whether autograph sessions would be part of the schedule.
“For more than a half century the Hall of Fame has served as a one-of-a-kind attraction honoring professional football, its heroes, its history and its core set of values. Now this partnership allows us to bring the Hall of Fame experience to an even a larger national audience,” Hall of Fame President David Baker stated.
Events will feature interactive multimedia exhibits, unique game artifacts from the Hall of Fame’s collection, and other activities including:
*Legacy Hall, which showcases holographic busts of some of pro football’s greatest legends, unique football artifacts and takes fans through a multimedia experience of football’s greatest moments.
* Traditions Stage features large screen, exciting productions from NFL Films, along with hourly Kids Press Conferences and Chalk Talk sessions.
* Impact Zone gives fans the opportunity to test their skills and experience activities, including training camp and obstacle courses, just like Pro Football Hall of Fame heroes.
* Hall of Fame Locker Room, onsite and at online, offers exclusive merchandise.
“We’re excited to work with the Pro Football Hall of Fame and bring this unique experience to the fans of professional football across the country,” said Peter Englehart, Executive Producer for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Tour. “Short of actually visiting the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, this tour will combine the experience of the game of football through various interactive activities with a unique collection of artifacts from the Hall.”
