Panthers to hold draft party

Posted Mar 13, 2013

Watch the Panthers make their final picks and get an autograph from first-round draft choice Star Lotulelei at the 2013 Draft Party Presented by Bud Light on Saturday, April 27 from noon to 5 p.m. at Bank of America Stadium. Admission is free.

Take in the last four rounds of the NFL Draft on large LED screens outside of the stadium's South Gate off Morehead Street and on the PantherVision screens inside the stadium bowl.

Fans will also have access to exclusive, behind-the-scenes areas of the stadium not typically open to the public. Tours of the Panthers' locker room will be offered, and fans can go on the playing field to participate in the Kids' Combine, featuring activities like field goal kicks, quarterback/wide receiver challenge and more.

Outside the stadium, some of the most unique Panthers-themed vehicles in the Carolinas will be on display as part of the Panthers Pride Rides Vehicle Showcase.

Additionally, the inaugural Draft Party Cornhole Tournament will start at 1 p.m. with registration beginning at noon. A maximum of 25 teams will be allowed to participate. Get more details.

Entertainment will include live music by Early Ray, Sol Fusion and Simplified along with appearances by the TopCats, Sir Purr and PurrCussion. Panthers play-by-play announcer Mick Mixon will conduct a question-and-answer session with fans, and team sponsors will set up interactives. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

Strollers and video cameras will be permitted inside the stadium for the Draft Party only. Bags smaller than 8" x 10" x 14" will be allowed after inspection as well as two sealed plastic non-flavored water bottles per person. The following items will not be permitted in the stadium.
