CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - The Illinois Football coaching staff and players hosted hundreds of Illini fans on Saturday, May 3, for the annual Illini Football Family Fun Fest. The Illini signed autographs and participated in football drills with children on the playing surface at Memorial Stadium for 90 minutes on a beautiful, sunny Spring day in Champaign.

Following Fun Fest, Fighting Illini Athletics hosted the first-ever Movie Night at Memorial Stadium, featuring "The LEGO Movie" on the giant 3,400 square foot video board. Fans were allowed to bring their own blankets, food and drink and sit on the playing field to watch the movie.
