On Saturday, the Phoenix Coyotes hosted the second annual 'CoyotesFest' at Glendale Arena. The event featured a wide variety of activities that allowed fans to mingle with Coyotes players, broadcasters and other Coyotes notables.
Activities were held throughout the Arena and included a Jeopardy game with players, a hockey trivia game that allowed fans to pair up with their favorite Coyotes players and a Hockey 101 seminar with Coyotes broadcasters. There were several autograph and photo sessions with the players; locker room and press level tours and the Zamboni will be out for fans to see.
The ice surface was covered and turned into a world-class Kids Zone that featured fun for little kids and 'Q & A' sessions with Coyotes broadcasters and players.
In addition, popular rock band MetalHead was on-hand to perform and 'The Pack,' the Coyotes new dance squad, was introduced to the public at the Coyotes Lounge.
Fans also had the opportunity t purchase new and used hockey equipment as well as find unbelievable bargains at a Garage Sale featuring merchandise with the old Coyotes logo. Howler, the Coyotes mascot, was also in attendance to meet and greet with fans.
"CoyotesFest is a great way to kick off the hockey season," said Coyotes President and COO Douglas Moss. "Fans are able to enjoy the many activities that are available and be able to spend time with their favorite players in very unique settings."
Admission to CoyotesFest was free, with profits from the day's events going to benefit Coyotes Charities.
