  • If you think this weekend completes the celebration for the 50th anniversary of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, wait. There is more.
    The Hall will host a Community Celebration Day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 7 at the Pro Football Hall of Fame, at 2121 George Halas Drive NW.
    That day is the actual 50th anniversary of the Hall’s original opening — Sept. 7, 1963.
    Hall of Famers participating in the Community Celebration Day include: Joe DeLamielleure, Leroy Kelly and Paul Warfield. They will host a roundtable discussion for fans with meet and greet opportunities immediately following the session.
    Also planned are a special time-capsule exhibit display commemorating the golden anniversary and a variety of family activities, including inflatables, face painting, balloon artists, the Class of 2013 Queen and Court and fun-filled crafts for kids on the Outside on the FieldTurf and in the event tent on the Hall of Fame Plaza.
    The Hall also plans several deals for visitors:
    • All guests will receive 50 percent off admission to the Hall.
     
    • Every 50th customer will receive a special football prize.
     
    • Visitors whose birthday is Sept. 7 will get a $25 gift card to spend in the Hall of Fame store.
     
    • Those born on Sept. 7, 1963, will receive a $50 gift card to the Hall of Fame store.
    • The first 1,000 people to visit the museum that day will receive a 50th Anniversary Pro Football Hall of Fame commemorative Panini patch card.
