Packers Calendar: Tailgate Tour Kicks Off in La Crosse

Packers Jordy Nelson, Mason Crosby and Charlie Peprah will stop in La Crosse on the first stop of the annual Tailgate Tour on Tuesday evening.

The Tailgate Tour bus will depart from Green Bay this morning for the Packers' annual goodwill tour around the state of Wisconsin and surrounding area with the first stop in La Crosse this evening.

The event in La Crosse and every official stop on the tour will last from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. Central time in each city. The rest of the week will include events in Madison on Wednesday, Kenosha on Thursday, Cedarburg/Grafton on Friday and Sturgeon Bay on Saturday.

Personalities on board for the 2012 Tour include Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy, wide receiver Jordy Nelson, kicker Mason Crosby and safety Charlie Peprah, along with former Packers Marco Rivera, William Henderson, and Larry McCarren.

Both $30 Tailgate Tour tickets and $5 general admission tickets remain available for all locations, with the exception of Kenosha which does not have general admission tickets available. More information about tickets is available at the Packers official website.

Following wide receiver Donald Driver's performance in the semifinals of last night's episode of Dancing With The Stars, voting continues online at ABC's website until 10 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Driver placed third last evening among the four remaining contestants with a score of 57 out of 60 possible points for his two dances, the Samba and the Waltz. He'll need the help of fans to keep him alive via voting if he's to compete in the finals next week.

Tonight's elimination episode airs at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Finally, new Packers center Jeff Saturday will appear on ESPNMilwaukee's Green and Gold Today at 9:45 a.m., which can be heard on 540 AM in the Milwaukee area or streaming online everywhere.
