Friday night NFL draft fun on the Parkway. Walter Perez reports during Action News at 11 on April 28. (WPVI)

Eagles' legend Ron Jaworski pumped up the crowd during Friday night's Round 2 of the NFL Draft.

Quite frankly though, this crowd needs no help getting pumped up.

It's another packed house here on Eakins Oval with thousands of people having fun with the wide-array of photo-opportunities and high-tech attractions.

Including a virtual reality tent that makes you feel like its game time and you're a member of your favorite team.

Michele Baymor of Fairmount says, "I'm one of the players and here we are, the cheerleaders are here. The flags are here, and there's fireworks..."

When they call it a "full game experience," they mean it!

Then there's the virtual Hall of Fame Bust Attraction.

Step into the photo booth, your picture is snapped, and superimposed on a digital bust.

Daniel Forbes of Baltimore said, "The experience here has been a blast."

But for all the high-tech offerings, it seems the most popular photo-opportunity is the headless mannequins wearing each of the NFL's 32 uniforms.

This is where we had a little fun with Mark Watson of Northeast Philadelphia.

We asked Mark if he felt silly. He replied, "Do I look silly?" And we told him yes.

And of course, we thanked Mark for being a good sport.
