Hello Caniacs, I hope all is well!
Hockey is BACK and the ninth annual Caniac Carnival is only days away. As with each year, we strive to make the event bigger and better for YOU, our fans!
Check out some of the new details for ‘08:
More rides!!! - Each year, the Carnival has grown in size and attendees. Therefore, we have increased the number of inflatable rides and included some new attractions. This offers more family friendly rides and shortens the lines. In addition, we have expanded the sports zone. The area will once again include street hockey and synthetic ice, but will also include new and improved sports-related inflatables.
The Red Bull TNT free style motocross show - If you missed them in March, this show offers countless jaw dropping moments that will leave you thinking- “I can’t believe what I just saw,” and “Did they just do what I thought they did?” It is a must-see as the riders do flips high in the sky and amazing twists and turns that leave fans shocked and amazed. They will have shows at 11:00 a.m., 12:15 p.m. and 1:30 p.m.
The RBC Bank Autograph Session - A cast of high-profile Canes will be participating. We will be giving away 1,500 wristbands starting at 10 a.m. This season, there is an added twist with the Autograph Express Line. The first 200 fans purchasing a new third jersey will receive access to this line. It adds a bonus for those buying the jersey, but fans just interested in the autographs will still have access to your favorite ‘Canes. Check out the Caniac Carnival FAQ for more information.
The Red-White game - The Red-White game offers Canes’ fans a glimpse of the future, interviews with current players and a chance to be a part of a priceless experience. John Forslund and Tripp Tracy will be joining us for the event and interviewing players and coaches throughout the game. In addition, we will be giving away 15 passes for an unforgettable post-game experience. Fifteen fans will be RANDOMLY selected throughout the game to come down to the ice after its conclusion. The winners will get to meet the players and have a photo taken on ice with the entire winning team! Throughout the game we will also be picking random winners for Hurricanes autographs of past and present Hurricanes players.
FREE!!! - The Carnival is free. Parking is free. Tickets to the Red-White game are free. The autograph session is free. I think you catch my drift. There is something for every Caniac. This is also a great time to bring out friends or family that have never experienced the excitement of Hurricanes Hockey. Check out the FAQ for details on the tickets and autograph session.
We look forward to seeing everyone on the 21st! The Carnival out front takes place from 10:00 am to 2:30 p.m. followed by the Red-White game at 3:00 p.m. Hurricanes Hockey is BACK!
