To celebrate, New York City, the Super Bowl Host Committee and GMC have dreamed up "Super Bowl Boulevard," a series of football-themed experiences that will take over Times Square the week before the big game. Stop by a live concert, snap a photo with the Vince Lombardi Trophy or race down a specially made toboggan. Admission is FREE and open to the public. FOX, NFL Network, CBS, CNN and ESPN will broadcast the festivities live.
