It’s a big weekend for the Toronto Rock, as they take on the Philadelphia Wings at the Air Canada Centre tomorrow night at 7:00 pm. If they win, it will clinch a playoff birth, so hopefully you have an idea of how important the game is!
Anyway, if you’re looking for something to do, the Rock welcomes the return of FanFest prior to the game, between 5:00 pm-6:00 pm in the Galleria outside Gate 1. There will be lots of activities for the entire family, such as face painting, a poster zone and the Rock shooting gallery.
Toronto Rock legend and NLL Hall of Fame goaltender Bob “Whipper” Watson will be there to sign autographs. Plus, more importantly, you’ll get a chance to meet the Toronto Rock Cheerleaders, who will be performing during the event, as well as signing autographs and posing for pictures with fans.
Toronto Rock in-game host Mia Gordon will be hosting FanFest, with trivia and prizes available throughout the event. And, despite my admittedly irrational dislike for all mascots, I should tell you IGGY will also be around to
harass meet the fans.
Saturday is also Autograph Night, with the first 5,000 fans in attendance receiving a Toronto Rock Cheer Card. Fans will then be invited to go down to the turf at the ACC after the game to get an autograph from their favourite Rock players.
