Carolina Panthers Fan Fest Will Now Cost You

Well, we knew it'd probably be just a matter of time before we'd have to PAY to attend the Carolina Panthers Fan Fest. Get your dollars ready - you'll have to pay for a $5 ticket to attend the annual Fan Fest. It used to be a free event complete with a fireworks show, but now the Panthers say they'll charge because of an increased demand for fan safety and precautions.

All proceeds from Fan Fest will be donated to the team's charity - Carolina Panthers Charities.

Fan Fest is August 4th at Bank of America Stadium.
