The Phoenix Coyotes announced today that players will hit the road for the tenth year in a row for "Coyotes' Caravan!" The tour will kick off in Tucson on Sunday, August 27 and hit Prescott on Monday, August 28. The Caravan will then make over 30 appearances across the Valley from Tuesday, August 29 through Friday, September 8. The Caravan will wrap up with the second annual 'CoyotesFest' party at Glendale Arena Saturday, September 9.
Coyotes players, broadcast personalities, other Coyotes notables and staff members will travel throughout Arizona and the Valley to provide fan-friendly opportunities for Coyotes players to meet and interact with fans.
Each stop of the Caravan is unique as the players present educational and safety material to elementary schools, spend time with the kids and sign autographs and mingle with fans at ice rinks. In addition, fans can meet and get autographs from their favorite players at Buffalo Wild Wings in Gilbert on Friday, September 8 from 4:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M. where KISS FM will broadcast live.
Another stop on the Caravan is an Open House at Glendale Arena Wednesday, August 30 from 6:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. Coyotes Captain Shane Doan, and newly signed defenseman Ed Jovanovski will be on hand to sign autographs and get fans excited about the upcoming season. Doan and Jovanovski will be at the event from 7:00 P.M. until 8:30 P.M.
Howler, the Coyotes mascot, will also be on the Caravan and at the Open House to meet and greet with fans.
