Monarchs To Host Second Annual Summer Fan Fest
MANCHESTER, NH – The Manchester Monarchs, the primary affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings, will hold the second annual Summer Fan Fest at the Verizon Wireless Arena from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 28. Fans of all ages are invited to join the Monarchs as they celebrate the summer in style!
It is the halfway point until the Monarchs embark on their 12th season in the American Hockey League. The plaza of the Verizon Wireless Arena will be turned into a carnival-like atmosphere with inflatable bounce houses, a dunk tank, photo opportunities with Max, games with former Monarchs players and a blowout sale at the Monarchs Pro Shop featuring equipment, jerseys, T-shirts, hats and much more!
A portion of Elm Street, from Lake Avenue to Auburn Street, will also be blocked off for Manchester’s largest Street Hockey Tournament! Four divisions compiled of eight teams each will play a three-game, round-robin style tournament. The top four teams in each division will then compete in the playoffs for their shot at the championship. Games will be comprised of two, seven minute halves. The entry fee for the Street Hockey Tournament is $50 with proceeds benefiting the Monarchs Care Foundation. To sign your team up for the Street Hockey Tournament, visit http://www.monarchsjungle.com/street-hockey-tournament or contact Alan Fritch at (603) 626- 7825 ext. 6135.
“We’re thrilled to bring Monarchs Country together during the summer to celebrate the team and have some fun in the sun,” exclaimed Monarchs President Darren Abbott. “Last year’s Summer Fan Fest was a huge success and we look forward to seeing our fans and crowning a new street hockey champion!”
Former Monarchs players will play games with fans and even take turns being dunked in the dunk tank! A full list of players will be announced at a later date.
Fans will have the opportunity to select seats for the 2012-13 season with packages starting as low as one game per month! The Monarchs regular season schedule will be announced in late August. For ticket information, visit www.manchestermonarchs.com or call (603) 626-7825.
