The event kicked off at 10 a.m. Sunday for the final match at 11 a.m.

The event's free to attend, with pay-as-you-go food and drink.

Visitors are welcome to stick around after the match to enjoy the beer garden, food and more fun.

This is the first time Croatia has found themselves in the World Cup Finals.
