Islanders Announce Playoff Fan Fest

by Staff Writer / New York Islanders

Islanders fans, make sure to join us for a special pre-game Fan Fest on the Box Office Plaza prior to every home game during the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals Series against the Washington Capitals.

On Saturday, April 25, Game Six’s Fan Fest gets underway at 1 p.m. prior to the 3 p.m. game.

Fan Fest will be highlighted by music provided by 94.3 The Shark and exciting, interactive games for fans of all ages. Fans can play in the various interactive games and inflatables, take part in an obstacle course, test their shot in the slap shot booth, and get their faces painted courtesy of Send in the Clowns.

The Islanders merchandise store will expand into the Box Office Plaza, giving fans the chance to purchase specially designed postseason gear for the final season at Nassau Coliseum. The Team Store will be open throughout every home playoff game.

Back by popular demand is the Smash Car, donated by E.W. G. Recycling and TNT Scrap. $5 earns one swing, while $10 allows three swings on a car featuring the Washington Capitals’ colors. All the proceeds will go to the Islanders Children’s Foundation.

All postseason long, fans are also encouraged to take part in BEARD-A-THON®. By joining the Islanders BEARD-A-THON®, fans pledge to maintain their beard as long as their team advances in the playoffs.

Those fans who can’t or don’t want to grow beards can still get involved by supporting their beard-growing friends or even the team’s players. As an added incentive, the team’s fan that raises the most money will win a team autographed Islanders jersey. Second place will receive a team-signed stick while third through fifth place will each win an autographed puck.
