CHICAGO -- Bears fans are getting ready to bear down at Soldier Field for the season opener against their rival Green Bay Packers. The game is Sunday at noon.

Officials at Soldier Field have a few reminders for fans and tailgaters.

Starting at 9 a.m. all surface lots of the Museum Campus are only open to tailgaters.  Same goes for McCormick Place and 31st Street lots, as well as the upper portion of the Waldron deck.

But to get into any of those lots, you need to have a season parking pass. Over-sized vehicles can park at the lot near the Adler Planetarium.

If you want to party after the game, lots will stay open for two hours afterwards.

For those going to the game, remember no large backpacks or purses are allowed inside ... only clear plastic bags, small clutch purses and medical bags. No coolers, briefcases or computer bags are allowed either.  Neither are alcohol, glass bottles or cans.
