Greenville, SC – The Greenville Swamp Rabbits, proud ECHL affiliate of the New York Rangers and the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack, brought back Hockey Demo Day to The Upstate last weekend and are gearing up for another day of excitement this Sunday, July 30th. Head over to Dicks Sporting Goods on Woodruff Rd. from noon to 4 p.m. and join the fun!
Fans flocked to the return of Hockey Demo Day on Saturday and took to the pavement outside of Dicks Sporting Goods. Those in attendance were treated to instruction and free play inside the Dew Street Hockey Zone with the Swamp Rabbits. Stomper even joined the kids for some street hockey. Outside of the rink were Swamp Rabbits Corn Hole boards and plenty of giveaways.
A special thanks goes out to Keith Horton at Premier Digital Displays as Swamp Rabbits highlights and music were broadcasted on his state of the art mobile digital billboards. Marcus Ledbetter’s Cart Underdawg also provided hot dogs and chips from his curbside stand right next to the rink.
“Hockey Demo Day is all about giving kids a fun and free afternoon with the Swamp Rabbits,” said Swamp Rabbits Chief Marketing Officer Megan Dotson. “Our Dew Street Hockey Zone has been all over The Upstate this summer, continuing to educate fans about hockey and giving kids a hands-on experience. It’s a great way for us to be active in the community and these Demo Days are a perfect way for families to have fun even before the season begins.
This Sunday, the Swamp Rabbits will be back out at Dicks Sporting Goods for the final Hockey Demo Day on Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Join the action at the Dew Street Hockey Zone, hang out and play some free corn hole. Try your luck in the rink against Stomper for free. Spectrum Reach Trailer will be on location grilling up free burgers while supplies last, as well as providing music, video and graphic entertainment.
