Packers fans visit Lambeau Field for the first time

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Sunday’s Packers win was especially fun for fans visiting Green Bay for the first time.

The Packers-Buccaneers game was a new experience for some fans.

"I'm enjoying the atmosphere, just being here," said Raymond Dams.

 He and his wife Shantavia were visiting the city for the first time from Madison.

David O'Reilly, originally from Liverpool, England, now lives in Los Angeles was also at the Packers game for the first time.  

"There's a leap area," said O'Reilly.  "We're kind of close to the leap area on that one end.  I'm really excited about it."

O'Reilly said his friends introduced him to the Packers and he's been a fan for almost 20 years.

"I love that tailgating feeling," said O'Reilly.

Shantavia and Raymond Dams were visiting to celebrate their 2nd anniversary.

"I think it's amazing," said Shantavia Dams.  “It's beautiful.  It's so much fun."

Fans visiting Lambeau Field for their first game and long time tailgating veterans said food is a big part of their experience Sunday.

“The food is amazing," said O'Reilly. "I love it." 

"You can drink as much as you like, eat good food, have a great time," said Shantavia Dams.

Outside the stadium Reyne Kasieta had two tables with a spread of different foods.  

She opens her tables to everyone.

“My grandson is diabetic 1 and any donations I make off my table goes towards diabetes," said Kasieta, a Packers fan from Wausau.

Kasieta said she's been a Packers fan since she was a child, watching games with her father, and has been tailgating for close to 20 years.

"Sometimes I don't actually make it into the games, because I just want to sit out and check the tables out and see what I can whip up," said Kasieta. 

 It was a display just as sweet as the Packers win.
