CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The stage is literally being set for the NFL Draft, which comes to Cleveland in less than three weeks.

Crews spent Monday working on the NFL Draft Main Stage, where NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will make pick announcements. The stage is being built next to FirstEnergy Stadium and overlooks Lake Erie.

“It’s pretty impressive and it’s really nice” says Judy Shy. She and her husband, Gary, stopped by Monday to check out the construction.

“It’s going to bring a lot of people down here” Judy tells 19 News.

The NFL Draft runs from April 29-May 1 and will be held in and around FirstEnergy Stadium, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Great Lakes Science Center.

And all wannabe pro footballers of all ages can take part in the NFL Draft Experience, an interactive football festival being held during all three days of the draft. The experience is free and open to the public, but you’ll need a reservation to get in. As of Monday afternoon, 19 News found that not many spots remain.

Fans can make a reservation using the NFL OnePass app. You will be asked to pick a date and session to reserve a free ticket (Note: some dates and times are sold out). Each ticket is good for two adults and up to five kids.
