For the third straight summer, the Bears will conduct a practice at an area high school. After visiting Warren High School in 2016 and Prospect High School in 2017, 2018 Gatorade Varsity Bears will be held at Vernon Hills High School on Aug. 22.
The event is free, but tickets are required for entry. A limited number of tickets will be available on Wednesday, July 18, at 10 a.m. at chicagobears.com/varsitybears. Fans are encouraged to arrive early to avoid delays in entering the stadium. The gates will open at 4 p.m. The Bears are slated to arrive at 5:45 p.m. and practice from 6-8:45 p.m. Practice will be followed by fireworks.
There will be no tailgating or alcohol allowed in any of the parking lots.
