    The Vince Lombardi Trophy, replicas of an NFL locker room as it appears on game day, historical Philadelphia Eagles memorabilia, and more await football fans at an outdoor festival to be held in conjunction with April's NFL Draft.

    Philadelphia on April 27-29 will host the NFL Draft, which alone is expected to bring nearly 200,000 attendees, generating $86 million in economic impact to the city, according to the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau.

    The Draft will be held on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, part of which will be transformed into a free outdoor football festival called the NFL Draft Experience.
