Flyers Fans can get Flyered Up at the Bud Light Playoff Block Party at the Wachovia Center prior to all home playoff games. The Block Party, which takes place both inside and outside the AT&T Pavilion on the 11th street side of the Wachovia Center, features delicious and tasty barbecue treats, including Butch’s BBQ; blazin’ burgers with jalapeño cheese and spicy mayo; bacon wrapped foot-long cheese hot dogs; chicken cheese steaks; frozen margaritas; Landshark Lager from Margaritaville Brewing Company; and the Anheuser Busch “Thirsty For More” beer truck.
At the Block Party fans can also test their hockey and basketball skills with a shot on goal, or by playing two-ball mini basketball. There will also be pop-a-shot contests, and meet-and-greets with team alumni and mascots. Local area radio stations will be on site with interactive games, including Rock Band and Guitar Hero, and other fun activities. In addition, live music from some of the area's hottest cover bands will grace the live stage and entertain throughout the Block Party.
This week Flyers representatives will be at the Battleship New Jersey, Please Touch Museum, City Hall and Philadelphia Zoo to “Flyer Up” fans. Stop by and pick up some great giveaways, listen to music, enter to win raffles, participate in contests, take a shot-on-goal, enjoy inflatable games and meet special guests including Bob “The Hound” Kelly, Bernie Parent and members of the Delta Dental Ice Team.
