The Padres announced that the annual Fanfest will take place on Saturday, Feburary 9th at Petco Park. The details of the Fanfest will be released closer to the event. Last year’s event attracted 18,000 fans to the free event.
Last year was my first time at Fanfest and I had an absolute blast. The behind-the-scenes tour was interesting and I enjoyed chatting with some of the groundskeepers. It is amazing all of the work that those individuals put in to make Petco Park look so beautiful.

I also bought some interesting things at the Padres garage sale and scored autographs from Tim Stauffer and Luke Gregerson. If you have never gone before, I implore you to check it out. It’s free, y’all.
