Bucks host first Fan Fest

In a city known for its festivals, it's only right that the Milwaukee Bucks would host a party for their supporters. For the first time, the Bucks will hold a Fan Fest prior to their annual open practice at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

Both events on Oct. 5 are free with the fest tipping off the day's activities at 10 a.m. and the practice following at 2 p.m.

The inaugural Fan Fest will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with doors opening at 9:30 a.m.

The event will include opportunities for autographs and photos with current players, coaches and broadcasters, interactive games, a FOX Sports Wisconsin "Be a Sports Anchor" booth, appearances by Bucks game night entertainment crews, a "yard sale" featuring Bucks memorabilia and much more.

The annual open practice will follow and run from 2 to 3 p.m. It will provide a rare peek into the inner-workings of an NBA team and a first look at the new faces on the Bucks squad.

Practice will take place on the newly-designed BMO Harris Bradley Center court, and most seating will be unreserved in the lower bowl on a first-come, first-served basis.

During the transition time between Fan Fest and the start of the open practice, head coach Larry Drew and general manager John Hammond will participate in a question and answer session, followed by performances from Bucks entertainment groups.

After the practice, there will be a half-court shooting event that matches each player with a selected fan to attempt to win a Bucks ticket package.
