This much loved and eagerly anticipated event provided children with the opportunity to experience what coming to the football was like when mum and dad were kids.

Adding to the fun and excitement on the day were AFL stars Darren Jolly (Collingwood),  Trent Stubbs (Collingwood), Paul Cribbin (Collingwood), Paul Seedsman (Collingwood), Tom Young, (Collingwood),  Bret Thornton (Carlton), Andrew Walker (Carlton), Jordon Russell (Carlton), Shannon Byrnes (Geelong Cats), and Tate Pears (Essendon)

Club mascots “Rick ‘The Rock’ Eagle” and “Mr Magpie” also attended to perform their entertaining antics.

Successful participants also received a football to kick on the ground and a fantastic show bag. 

Many families also took the opportunity to stay and watch the Collingwood v West Coast Eagles match from their reserved seating area.

To commemorate this special family day, participants took part in a group photograph on the MCG arena, which will be published in Thursday’s Herald Sun.
