EAGLE — Fans normally see their favorite Denver Broncos behind a cluttered football helmet, but on Friday, fans in Eagle will be able to meet them.
The organization will not release which players will be coming as part of the Salute to Fans Tour, but fans will have the opportunity to take photos and get autographs from some of the Broncos players and cheerleaders, as well as Miles the mascot.
The celebration takes place from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Friday at Brush Creek Pavilion, and the town is anticipating a large crowd.
Town officials are encouraging people in Eagle to walk or ride bikes to the event. People can park at the venue, Eagle Ranch parking lots and at Brush Creek Elementary School.
A free bus service will shuttle fans to and from the Eagle County Fairgrounds, as well. Starting at 3 p.m., fans can park in the west lot at the fairgrounds, and there will be two shuttles running from 3 to 7 p.m. back and forth.
“Thanks to ECO Transit for stepping up and offering free shuttles,” said Amy Cassidy, marketing and events director for the town of Eagle.
As part of the visit, the organization will also hold a private community component, which includes hosting a football clinic, said Marisol Villagomez, Broncos manager of fan development.
“We’re really excited to be there,” Villagomez said. “The support we receive from the community is greatly appreciated. So come show up and have your picture taken or get an autograph.”
The forecast for Friday is looking sunny, with a high in the low 70s.
