From U of L, here’s everything you need to know about this year’s spring game:

The University of Louisville football team will conduct its annual Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Spring Game on April 14 at 1 p.m. at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Admission to the game is free.

All parking lots will open at 8 a.m.

The day begins at 8 a.m. in BudLight StreetFest with Fan Fest entertainment and carnival rides. Located between stadium Gates 3 and 5, the StreetFest area will feature food vendors, plus music and family-friendly games and rides. The carnival will close throughout the game and re-open from 3-6 p.m.

At the conclusion of the game, the 2018 Cardinals will sign autographs for 45 minutes on the field, while head coach Bobby Petrino will be available after he addresses the media.

Fans can pick up the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Spring Game schedule poster in StreetFest or at tables throughout the concourse with an encouraged donation to the Dave Thomas Foundation.

In addition, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids will be conducting a raffle located on the concourse above Gate 4, for a chance to win prizes such as UofL memorabilia, premium tickets to select 2018 home games, and menu items from Wendy’s. All proceeds directly benefit the Dave Thomas Foundation.

Cardinal Authentic, the team store of the Louisville Cardinals, will host a discounted sale in StreetFest where fans can purchase officially-licensed merchandise for up to 70 percent off. Tickets for the carnival rides will be sold per ride or an all-day pass can also be purchased.

Gates for the game will open at noon with beer and drink specials available throughout the game on the Norton Healthcare Terrace for only $3.

During halftime, Louisville will recognize the 2017 senior class by presenting last season’s team awards, including the 2017 MVP.
