Fans will be able to catch the Riders’ final practice ahead of the Labor Day Classic, as well as participate in activities such as inflatables, face painting and a balloon artist. Concessions in Harvard’s Studio 620 lounge will also be open for fans who need a bite to eat or a cold drink.

After practice, Rider fans will also be invited onto the field to run, play football and take pictures, before the entire Roughrider team joins them in the hall for an hour-long autograph session at 2 p.m.

In addition to the Rider Fan Day experience, CFL fans will also have another chance to get in on the action.

CFL Fans Fight Cancer will be hosting a charity dunk tank at Centennial Market from 1-4 p.m. A number of local celebrities will be included in the dunk contest, and if that doesn’t excite you, there will also be plenty of Blue Bomber fans getting dunked too.

The party has already started in Rider Nation.
