DeKalb County Farm Bureau has arranged tours of the home fields for the Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears on Friday, June 28.
At Wrigley Field you will take a walking tour and see the press box, visitor’s clubhouse, Budweiser bleachers, Cub’s dugout and have the opportunity to be on the field and throw some baseballs (bring your own baseball and glove) while the Cubs are out of town.
In just 90 minutes, you can experience the beauty, charm and historic features fans have come to know and love, all while learning about the majestic ballpark that has captivated Cubs fans for more than 100 years. You will have extra time to visit the Cubs store and see the World Series trophy.
Then it’s on to Soldier Field for a walking tour of this historic and modern-day stadium, dedicated to the men and women of the armed services and home of the Chicago Bears.
The behind the scenes 90-minute tour includes a historic video, the south courtyard, doughboy statue, visitor’s locker room, skyline suite, and colonnades. Because the turf field is being replaced you will not be able to go on the field.
Cost of this day tour is $35 for adults (19-59 yrs.) and $25 for children (2-18) and seniors (60+ yrs.). Cost includes the stadium tours and motor coach transportation. Families will be on their own for food choices near Wrigley Field or may bring a picnic lunch.
On June 28, the motor coach will depart from Farm Bureau at 8:45 a.m. and return by 6 p.m.
Farm Bureau is underwriting the cost of this trip for the enjoyment of member families. Registration is now open. A limited number of spaces are available. Call or stop by the Farm Bureau office to pay with check or credit card.
Deadline to register is June 5.
