With the National Championship football game coming to Levi’s stadium on Monday, Downtown San Jose is rolling out the red carpet with a fun-filled weekend of activities leading up to the big game. In addition to the events listed below, San Pedro street has been closed off to cars and has been covered with turf painted to look like a football field where there will be football-themed games and a Dos Equis beer garden there Friday through Monday. On top of the San Pedro Square activation, “The Quad” at Plaza de Cesar Chavez will feature ESPN broadcasts, music and other fan activities; the San Jose McEnery Convention Center will host Playoff Fan Central, a three-day experience with pep rallies and autograph signings; and Discovery Meadow next to the Children’s Discovery Museum will be the venue for AT&T Playoff Playlist Live’s three nights of free concerts.
