Children ages six to 12 can take part in a clinic taught by the pros at 6 p.m. Registration opens at 5 p.m.

A live scrimmage will be followed by the fireworks show that caps the night.

Food and beverage will be available for purchase. Kids can have their faces painted.

Admission is by donation of a non-perishable food item or cash, which will be given to the local food bank as part of the Lions’ Purolator Tackle Hunger Program.

Each fan who brings a food or cash donation will be entered to win their choice of a Mike Reilly autographed jersey or a four-pack of club seats and sideline access to the Lions’ home opener against Winnipeg on June 15.

Game time in Vancouver is 7 p.m. at BC Place Stadium.
