For fans looking to get up close to Red Sox stars, Picnic in the Park is the place to be.
Fans can come for the picnic barbecue at Fenway Park or upgrade to MVP tickets. Red Sox players won't be the only famous places at the park — Kris Allen of "American Idol" is on tap to give a special performance.
Farrah Lester shares all of the details about the special event with Jenny Dell on Red Sox First Pitch. For more information on the Aug. 5 picnic, visit redsox.com/picnic.
