CLEVELAND — Just two weeks remain until festivities begin in downtown Cleveland for the 2019 MLB All-Star Game.

Among the key attractions for All-Star Week is the PLAY BALL PARK, an interactive fan festival disguised as a paradise for baseball lovers.

Setup began Friday at the Huntington Convention Center on Lakeside Avenue. WKYC streamed live from the scene this morning.

Touted by MLB and the Cleveland Indians as the "world's biggest and most playable baseball festival", PLAY BALL PARK will feature baseball and softball activities, food, music and more, all within a 10-minute walk from Progressive Field. 

Fans will find food trucks, a full concert stage ready for performances by The Killers and Twenty One Pilots, a zip line and a virtual reality home run derby.

PLAY BALL PARK opens July 5-9. The outdoor area will be free to the public, while admission inside requires a $25 ticket. Children and seniors are $18.
