Reading, PA – The Reading Royals of the ECHL, affiliate of the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League and the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League, invite everyone in the Greater Reading Region and beyond to celebrate the Kelly Cup Championship Royals one more time with the Get-Back-to-Business Blockbuster Block Party on Penn Street immediately prior to the Royals’ 2013-14 home opener on Saturday, October 19. The fun will kick off directly in front of what will then be known as Santander Arena (700 Penn Street, Reading, PA) at 4:00 pm and lead up to the Championship Banner Presentation immediately preceding the Royals’ season opening face-off against the South Carolina Stingrays (7:35 pm).
Of course, the guest of honor for the season opening Get-Back-to-Business Blockbuster Block Party will be Miss Kelly, and DMK Productions will set up a photo-booth so that everyone can say cheese next to the shiny ‘new’ Cup which has now been engraved with the names of the 2013 Royals. The GBBB Block Party will have plenty to do for everyone in the family, including a number of participatory games, a face-painter, and—get those arm muscles ready—a season-opening ‘Smash-a-Car’ courtesy of V&M Towing for your sledge-hammer swinging pleasure. Penn Street will be rocking with music, and to keep your energy going for the upcoming game, there will be hot dogs provided by SONIC® Drive-In, as well as other refreshments, including non-alcoholic beverages, provided by the Royals. The Royals Booster Club will also be on hand to get everyone ramped up for the kick-off of the Royals’ efforts to become the first team in ECHL history to repeat as Kelly Cup Champions.
The Royals kick off the defense of the team’s 2013 Kelly Cup Championship on Saturday, October 19, 2013, (7:35 pm), at the Sovereign Center in Reading, Pennsylvania, with the 2013-14 season opener against the South Carolina Stingrays. The Royals also face the Stingrays on Sunday, October 20 (4:05 pm) in Game Two of Opening Weekend. Season Tickets for the 2013-14 Reading Royals are currently available.
