As I’m sure you’ve heard already, the NFL Draft is coming to Cleveland this year! The official Draft will be from April 29 – May 1; however, as part of the big celebration the NFL has brought their giant Pepsi NFL helmets from ALL 32 teams right here to downtown Cleveland. These helmets have traveled all over the country to promote previous drafts & now they are here in The LAND!
Fans are encouraged to come downtown to interact safely with with their favorite NFL team helmets – Cleveland Browns, of course!
A few important pieces of information to note so you don’t walk around the entire First Energy Stadium like we did:
All of the helmets are located in Mall C downtown. I’ve seen a lot of chatter from people saying they had no idea there were different malls. Well, that’s why I’m here. Check out this map for further clarification on the location.
This is Mall C on Google Maps which is spot on – Click here or on the image for the map
Mall C is located right off Lakeside Ave across the street from Huntington Convention Center.
You most likely won’t find street parking so save yourself time & just park at one of the garages nearby. If you’re going just for photo ops, an hour rate can be just a few dollars. Huntington & Willard Parking Garages are right next door to Mall C.
Also, feel free to respectfully climb inside the helmets – they actually encourage you to do so. The helmets will be on display at Mall C until April 27 until they get moved to the NFL Draft Experience so make sure you get there soon.
Great photo ops with the kids!
