"People really enjoy it:" Packers fence across from Lambeau features Jordy-themed slogan this year

GREEN BAY -- In Green Bay, on Lombardi Avenue, there's a sign that the NFL regular season is nearly here!

The Packers fence, located across from Lambeau Field has always been painted with a special slogan every year.

On Labor Day, Monday, September 5th, people gathered to paint the fence green and gold.

This year's theme is centered around the return of Jordy Nelson, with the fence reading: "With Jordy, it's better to receive."

Organizers of the event said it's a great way to connect with the community.

"It's been going for quite a while and people really enjoy it. The media enjoys it. It's just a nice community event. It's Packers friendly and it makes us very proud to do it," Bruce Kiehl said.
