Here are a few quick highlights for Sunday's game vs. San Jose. Update: Due to past and current weather conditions the front lawn party scheduled to take place before the game today is cancelled. Please note this does not impact the Hurricanes Tailgate Plan, which will take place as scheduled. Pre-game:
- Our front lawn series is back this season. We will once again host ten parties on the front lawn. We will be joined by the band GB4 as well as our inflatable set up (Hurricanes moon bounce, obstacle course and slap shot booth), street hockey and food for purchase.
- Right by the front lawn set-up will be the Canes Tailgate, sponsored by Backyard Bistro. The package includes tickets, parking and a wide variety of food.
- The Ray Whitney ceremony, hosted by TV play-by-play extraordinaire John Forslund, will include a special video tribute and gifts from the organization, players and the league. Make sure you are in your seats by 1:20 to ensure you do not miss any of this special occasion.
- Also, remember that fans can purchase tickets in the upper level for $13 through puck drop.
Slap Shot Sunday (Post-game):
We will be hosting our first post-game experience immediately following the game. On Sunday, fans 16 and under can come on the ice and shoot on the same goal as Staal, Brind'Amour, Cullen and the rest of the group did minutes before. We have teamed up with FS Carolinas to host five post-game experiences this year, including three Slap Shot Sundays and photos on the bench and at center ice.
See you all Sunday and don’t forget to change your clocks!
