With the players up in Moncton getting ready for the season that is set to begin in only a few short weeks, the I.C.E. Tour had also had an extremely busy weekend. In all, the Tour hit six different events over the course of three days. The busy weekend began on Friday with the Sea Cliff Elementary Fall Carnival. The I.C.E. Tour was on site with the inflatable moonbounce, Sparky, and a table of great giveaways for all the school children to enjoy. More than 300 youngsters from the school district stopped by for a chance to enjoy some of the great entertainment provided by the I.C.E. Tour. While the moonbounce was set up in Sea Cliff on Friday, the rest of the I.C.E. Tour had made its way out to Northport and set up shop at the Laurel Avenue Elementary School, where registration for this year’s Great Cow Harbor Race was taking place. The race, which has more than 3,000 participants, is one of Long Island’s most famous. While the racers went inside to the gym to register, their families and children had the chance to enjoy the inflatable slap shot booth, obstacle course, and video games set up around the Islanders RV.
 
Saturday began with an early event at Cedar Creek Park in Seaford. It was there that the Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation was holding its annual Bike-A-Thon fundraising event. The park was filled with many families on their bicycles as they did laps around the entire park grounds to help raise money for the foundation. Entertainment at the event was provided by a DJ, the Knights of Columbus, and of course, the I.C.E. Tour. The inflatable moonbounce and obstacle course, along with the Islanders RV, were all on hand for the event. Sparky and the Ice Girls were also there, kicking off the start of the event with all the bikers, cheering them on as they rode around the park, and signing autographs for their fans.
 
Saturday afternoon the I.C.E. Tour set up shop at the Lynbrook Health and Safety Fair in Greis Park of Lynbrook. The event had more than 500 people in attendance, all of which were able to test their shooting abilities at the Islanders display where the inflatable slap shot booth was on hand. Fans tried their best to match the skills of some of their favorite Islanders by trying to go top shelf or five-hole on a goalie cut out. Sparky and the Ice Girls were also on hand for the event, meeting and having a great time with some of their young fans while helping them enjoy some healthy activities outdoors.
 
On Sunday, the I.C.E. Tour headed out east, bright and early, to be a part of the 3rd Annual Hydrocephalus Walk taking place in Belmont State Park. The event takes place each year to raise money and awareness for Hydrocephalus, a disease in which excessive cerebrospinal fluid builds up in the skull, which can lead to several different types of complications. The I.C.E. Tour was on hand with the inflatable moonbounce, Sparky, and Ice Girls for all the people of the walk to enjoy as they raised money for an important cause. Great Islanders prizes were given out to everyone who stopped by.
 
The weekend ended with a big barbeque in the park, as the I.C.E. Tour made its final stop in field 6A of Eisenhower Park to be a part of the annual Labor Union Picnic. The Islanders RV and the inflatable games were on hand for the more than 1,500 guests of the picnic. Children rushed over to the beautifully designed RV to play a video game or get in line to race through the inflatable obstacle course. Sparky and the Ice Girls were also on hand for everyone to meet. The Islanders gave out tons of great prizes to all and everyone enjoyed the beautiful day and all of the great food.
