The Carolina Hurricanes will host their 5th annual Hurricanes Summerfest, a mid-summer celebration of Canes hockey, from June 26-July 1 at PNC Arena.
Hurricanes Summerfest encompasses the following:
The Summerfest Celebration is set for Saturday, July 1 at 10:00 a.m. at PNC Arena. Free parking and admission are available to the general public on the East side of the building.
The free event, which takes place inside PNC Arena, will feature the Canes Prospect Game, an autograph session with the camp's participants, an equipment sale and a State of the Hurricanes discussion hosted by Mike Maniscalco with special guests Ron Francis and Mike Vellucci.
The Summerfest Celebration will also include over 20 interactive inflatables, games and experiences, free giveaways, guest speakers from the Hurricanes, appearances by Stormy and the Pepsi Storm Squad, discounted concessions, hockey games and extended hours for The Eye team store.
Fans attending the autograph session (10-11:00 a.m.) can pick up a wristband outside of the East entrance beginning at 9:00 a.m. (one wristband per person). All prospects are scheduled to attend the autograph session, and lines will be cut to ensure a prompt 11:00 a.m. conclusion.
