The Pittsburgh Penguins celebrated their Fan Fest, but Sidney Crosby and Marc-Andre Fleury appeared to be having most of the fun Sunday.

Crosby, the Penguins captain, and Fleury, the goalie, shared the stage at PPG Paints Arena for the event's first session, and they showed their lighter side when facing off against forward Matt Cullen and defenseman Trevor Daley in a round of the charade game, Heads Up.

Tweet from @penguins: The faces you make when watching your teammates (Cullen and Daley) play a game of Heads Up!

Tweet from @penguins: "I'll be back."

Fleury showed off his trademark athleticism at the request of a Penguins fan.

Tweet from @jess_carducci: Best part of #Pensfest so far? I definitely think so @penguins

Like the rest of their Penguins teammates, Crosby and Fleury signed autographs for the scores of fans in attendance. One fan had a special item for Sid to sign.

Tweet from @penguins: Olympic torch, signed by Sidney Crosby. Today was an awesome day for this lucky fan.

Crosby even had time to pose for a selfie with one lucky fan.

Tweet from @asakalik21: Had a GREAT time at the @penguins fan fest. Got to meet our incredible captain which made my day!

Crosby and Fleury may have been the most prominent Penguins, but they weren't the only ones in making the rounds. Defensemen Olli Maatta, Brian Dumoulin and Ian Cole put their cooking skills on display.

Tweet from @penguins: Dumoulin to Potash on his cooking prowess: "I said I like to cook, not that I'm good at it."
