The Kings yesterday announced that their inaugural “Hockey Fest” event, which will be held at LA Live in August. I remember some readers asking when the Kings would put on an event such as this, so hopefully this will be a strong event. From the Kings’ news release:
LOS ANGELES – LA Kings Hockey Fest ’09, a three-day interactive festival celebrating the Los Angeles Kings and the game of hockey will take place beginning Friday evening, Aug. 28 and conclude on Sunday, Aug. 30.
This inaugural event will feature Kings’ players, coaches, alumni, hockey dignitaries, special Kings’ merchandise, hockey memorabilia, special Q&A sessions with players and autograph sessions.
All activities and events during the LA Kings Hockey Fest ’09 will take place at LA Live in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles.
Season Ticket Members will have an advanced opportunity to purchase tickets for the first-ever LA Kings Hockey Fest at the discounted rate of $45 beginning Tuesday, March 24. This is an all-inclusive ticket price which entitles ticket holders admittance into all LA Kings Hockey Fest events for the weekend. Tickets for the General Public will go on-sale on Monday, March 30 at 10 a.m. and will cost $60.
“Hosting Hockey Fest at LA Live will be a great way for fans to interact with the LA Kings in ways they have never done before. It’s a celebration of the best game in the world and a can’t miss event for anyone who loves the LA Kings and the sport of hockey,” said Kings’ President of Business Operations Luc Robitaille. “Hockey Fest will be a fantastic way to kick off the 2009-10 season.”
