NFL Gameday Village opens in Pioneer Square ahead of Seahawks home opener



SEATTLE - Thousands of Seahawks fans are expected in Pioneer Square Wednesday and Thursday for pregame activities.

Occidental Park has been turned into Gameday Village -- an NFL fan experience.

While tickets to a Seahawks game are very expensive, fans can visit the village for free.

In the fan style tour, fans can play video and trivia games and get freebees.  The village is packed with a variety of activities and spans three blocks to CenturyLink Field's north lot.

One block is geared specifically for kids with an obstacle course, ball pit and games.

Former Seahawks will also be there at set times to sign autographs. Get the specific times here.

NFL Gameday Village is open Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.

A rally will be held in Pioneer Square Thursday at noon.  The home opener against the Green Bay Packers is at 5:30 p.m.
