Islanders to host Fan Fests for Playoffs

Fans are invited to join the festivities at the Coliseum prior to each first-round home game

Thursday, 05.02.2013 / 4:51 PM New York Islanders

Islanders fans - This is your time to rally together to cheer on your Orange & Blue!

When the New York Islanders Stanley Cup Quarterfinal series shifts back to Long Island for Games 3 and 4, celebrate your favorite team and join in us at the Fan Fests on the Box Office Plaza, located on the east side of the Coliseum.

All Fan Fest activities will begin on the plaza two hours prior to puck drop (10 a.m. on May. 5 and 5 p.m. on May 7). Fans can join the cause and participate in ‘Smash Car,’ presented by TNT Scrap and EWG Recycling, where they will have the opportunity to put their mark on a car decked out in Penguins black and gold. For $5, fans will take a sledgehammer and have one swing to put a dent in the car (all proceeds will benefit the Islanders Children’s Foundation). A $10 donation will get you three swings at the black and gold vehicle.

Both WBAB 102.3, Long Island’s No. 1 Rock Station, and Moe’s Southwest Grill bleed Orange & Blue too, and will be at the Fan Fest with giveaways and more. Islanders inflatables and interactive games, including the slap-shot booth, moon bounce and obstacle course, will be set up around the plaza as well. Fans can purchase food and beverages during the Fan Fest and ALL Islanders Playoff gear will be available in merchandise tents set up on the plaza.

Sunday’s special guest at Fan Fest will be Barattini Productions, providing you with the music and entertainment you need to get pumped up for the big game. Tuesday, NHL Network will join the rally with their Virtual Stanley Cup, so fans can take photos with sports’ most famous trophy.

So pull out all of your orange and blue, and get ready to rally for your favorite team before they go head-to-head with the Pittsburgh Penguins!
