The Dallas Stars announced today that captain Jamie Benn will not attend PM Standley Motorcars Party In The Park at Klyde Warren Park in downtown Dallas on Friday, July 15 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m due to his recent surgery.
In Benn's place, General Manager Jim Nill will speak to the fans regarding a wide range of topics including the team's most-recent acquisitions, as well as what the team's plans are in the upcoming months leading up to the season.
The free live music event will begin at 6 p.m. The event will feature music from Rise & Shine and conclude with Jonathan Tyler, who takes the stage at approximately 8 p.m. A Dallas-based "rock band with a twist of blues and country", Jonathan Tyler headlines the outdoor summer event for the entire family.
Also featured at the event will be the unveiling of the Western Conference Regular Season Championship and Central Division Championship banners that will hang in the rafters at American Airlines Center. The banners will be placed to allow for fans to take photos with them. Food trucks from local vendors will be on-site along with Dallas Stars mascot Victor E. Green and the Stars Street Squad, which will have inflatables and interactive games for all ages.
