Two weeks ago, Cobo Center was filled with the latest cars and trucks. Now it has been transformed into the NFL Experience. A theme park for the entire family with FREE autograph sessions and more.

At the NFL Experience there are many exciting things to check out. If you remember last year, Detroit was home to the MLB All-Star Game. This is similar to the FanFest that took place at Cobo Center. The only difference is this one is about football.

You will have the chance to dress up like your favorite football players and get your picture taken. There will be free face painting and temporary tattoos as well. NFL players will read books about football to the kids who attend.

They are aimed for boys and girls from ages 8-12. In addition, look for the referee clinics so you will now how to call a play.

Also, there will be a cheerleader spirit clinic for those girls who want to improve their skills on cheering. There will be teams from junior high, high school and All-Star teams.

There will be a Super Bowl Spirit Clinic taking place at the Gatorade Clinic Field. Here 1,000 young women in grades 5 through 12 will play football. NFL coaches and players will teach them and cheerleaders will demonstrate their techniques. Look for hip-hop singer Teairra Mari, female racecar driver Audrey Zavodsky, and Allie LaForce.
