Members of the Oilers Event Team get into the spirit on the Fanboni during the Capital EX Parade in downtown Edmonton.
The Edmonton Oilers Fanboni, along with Capitals players, mascot Razzle and Oil King’s mascot Louie the Lion, took to the streets of Edmonton today for the Capital EX Parade. Starting at 96 Street and 102 Avenue, fans of all ages cheered on the Oilers, Oil Kings and Capitals float as it made its way along the parade route.
“It was very cool,” said 10-year-old Sara Mattson. “The best part was when the lights started flashing and the sirens went off.”
As the parade made its way west down 108 Street and back up 99 Street, a fan favorite were the Capitals players engaging with the crowd.
“[Parades] are always entertaining; the kids are out having a good time. It’s just really fun being a part of this,” said Edmonton Capitals Chris Avery.
Capital EX opens its doors tomorrow at noon and the Oilers, Oil Kings and Capitals will be taking it all in at Monday Morning Magic.
