With author Dan O'Neill
| 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. | Main Festival Grounds
No Blues game, or Blues book for that matter, is complete without a visit from “Louie.” The precocious blue polar bear joins Dan O’Neill, author of When The Blues Go Marching In: Championship Edition, to take pictures, sign autographs, create some havoc and get you ready for the “Let’s Go Blues” season. Bring the kids, meet “Louie” and take home a memory!
